Summary:

A worthless piece of junk

Faults:

Bad head gasket at 90,200 miles.

AC doesn't work at all.

Burned up 2 AC compressors within two months.

Starter want bad at 94,500.

Water leak in back and passenger side windows.

Windshield wiper motor seized up on me during a rain storm.

Car has a knock now at 95,000.

The dashboard gauges all failed around 92,000, but all fixed now.

General Comments:

The car gets 22mpg or more.

But it's uncomfortable to drive. It shakes when it goes over 60mph on the highway.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Almost any 16 year old volume production car with high mileage, will be worthless junk by now.
