The crank sensor was the first thing to go. Driving down the road or just setting at a red light, the car would shut off. It was only $15.00 and 20 minutes to fix it.
The air conditioner has to be recharged every summer, there does not seem to be a leak that anyone can find.
There is a big noise when you first start the car, 4 mechanics cannot find out what the noise is, possibly in the passengers side air bag.
The transmission slips. I put Lucas transmission in the car when I first bought it and for the first year, the transmission didn't slip. Since that time I have to put it in there on a regular basis. Now it is having a hard time going up little hills.
Overall, for what I paid for the car I have been more than satisfied. I have not replaced lots of parts on it just trying to baby the ones that I have.
The interior is still good and the sun beats on it constantly. The back seat of this car is big enough for a small family to live in... The trunk is gigantic.
The car handles well, no problems in the rain or snow. Will get up and go (other than transmission) when I need it to.
