Summary:

Thought it was a better quality vehicle

Faults:

The transmission had to be replaced after owning the car only nine months.

The brakes needed to be worked on, and still are not right.

The car had a constant clicking noise as you were driving. Had car checked and found out we had to replace the drivers side axle assembly.

The car has had to go back twice since having the transmission rebuilt. The car would only go in reverse, had to replace the forward clutch and reassemble the solenoids.

Had an experience of a lifetime when I was driving home at no more than 10 miles an hour when the air bags exploded for no apparent reason.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
