Automatic transmission went out after 1,000 miles of owning it. Cost $450 for a used one to replace it. The transmission literally exploded at a stoplight downtown and dumped transmission fluid all over the road. $50 tow bill.
Driver side CV Drive axle broke in half and my car was towed home again for $50. New axle cost $65.
Only 1 windshield wiper works.
The heat/ac fan only works when turned on all the way to 4.
I have NO dash lights whatsoever. I checked all the fuses and bulbs, but found nothing wrong... Very Confusing.
Transmission shifts really hard out of 1st into 2nd.
Needs a new axle on the passenger side.
Bad exhaust leak.
Very noisy and rattly car.
It gets horrible gas mileage with my stop-and-go driving. I am averaging 17mpg with a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder.
Its VERY slow, and struggles to maintain 80mph on a flat straight stretch. Going uphill you better be happy with 50mph.
This car has a well designed interior, but it squeaks and rattles. The body of the car is cheap and dents easily. Typing up this report is making me angry because I wish this car would get stolen or at least coast down a hill into a black hole.
