General Comments:

The car doesn't seem to be reliable to me.

What I listed was just the problems of the top of my head and there is a lot more.

From one problem to another the spending and repairing to that car never seems to stop and no one wants to buy it from me.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The car is 14 years old after all, what do you expect, no wear and tear after that mileage???

I treat my ride with respect and she hasn't had any problems yet. Old motor was beat bad, but my new motor is perfect and has stayed that way for half a year.
