Brake lights shorted out the second day I owned it.
Transmission case cracked at 30,000.
All four door panels rattle badly, dealer says cannot fix them regardless of the fact I am willing to pay.
Clunking noise coming out of rear (I think it is the suspension) Dealer cannot hear the noise.
Resonating noise when shifting gears. One dealer said they cannot hear it. Second dealer say they can hear it, but they don't know what it is.
Water leaks in from above the windshield on the passengers side.
Brakes make a terrible growling noise sometimes. Been checked by dealer who says they are fine, but the noises are still there.
I have had to put 6 headlights in the car to date.
Speedometer jumps around sometimes indicating radically different speeds.
Trim around door and some weatherstripping is already wearing out.
Sometimes when starting the engine it rev to 4000rpm and stays there for approximately 30 seconds. Then tries to stall.
The acceleration of this car is to be expected from a car in this price range.
The air condition performance is horrible. I live in a moderate climate and even then it does not cool the occupants down even on high.
The handling of this car scares me. The car does not feel well footed. Through turns and down the highway it feels like it is bobbing and weaving like a Cessna. So scary that my wife and two good friends refuse to drive my car.
I traded in my 1998 Dodge Neon coupe for this car as I was needing four doors. What a big mistake!
