Great if I can get it running.
I just bought this car about 7 months ago. I am a single mother, and needed a good car. My father had a 2000 and it was great.. Unfortunately someone hit his and totaled it.
Okay, back to my issue, that I PRAY someone can help me with. Since I have had the car, I have put in a new alternator, tie rod ends, and a wheel bearing. All of the work I had to do has made me late on a lot of bills.
The car was running great. On my way home from work, about 5 miles away, the car would not shift into 5th gear. It is a 5 speed. I got it home driving it in 4th. When I got home, it seemed like it was stuck in gear. I came down later and it will shift in any gear, it just will not go. We did get it moving in 3rd and 4th, but it will not drive in any other gear. I've been told a million things. Clutch, trans?? I have not been able to afford to have anyone come out to look at it. A mechanic did come out to look at it. Said he would be back to jack it up and find out what's wrong with it. I ran into him trick or treating, and he was drunk. He told me to drive the car down to the shop and he'd fix it. OK, at this time it still hadn't moved. So needless to say I will not be calling him back. It is almost Christmas, and I am thankful I have my aunt's van to drive, but my Christmas wish is to get this car going. I want to cry every time I walk outside and it just is sitting there.. I know it will probably be a few hundred to fix it. It more than likely will not be anything minor, but if you have had this problem, please let me know what you did to fix it. It will move in 3rd and 4th, so I'm thinking it isn't the transmission, but honestly I have no clue.. Thank you.
I love the car. I knew it needed some work. It is great on gas, and just perfect for my daughter and I.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
