The transmission went out in late 2000. The cost was a tremendous $2000. The transmission is again going out. I am taking it back to the repair shop where he gave me a one year warranty to get it fixed again.
The overdrive went out and I had that fixed.
The sleeper headlight system is out. It will cost $60 to replace the unit.
The hydraulics in hatchback went out. Will also cost around $60 to replace.
There is a big blind spot in both the front and back.
There is not enough room in the backseat area for passengers. Either they have no head room, hitting their heads against the back window, or there is not enough leg room.
The rubber trim along sides of car keep coming unglued and fall off. I have had the driver's side fixed twice, already awaiting a third time.
All in all, I love this car. I have put a lot of money into it, but feel it was well worth it.
The car rides well and is very reliable.
I had found out a few weeks ago that my cousin in California owns the exact same year, model, and color as I do. We compared notes with each other, and both have had the same problems, especially with the transmission. And she feels the same way I do about keeping the car and fixing it instead of trading it.
I am very happy with this car. I love the looks of this car and the way it drives.
Everyone has repairs when they own a vehicle. But it was quite a shock to me when the mechanic told me it had a Mitsubishi engine causing the repairs and parts to be so expensive.
Everyone loves my car. I get a lot of inquiries about it. It is a sporty looking vehicle on the outside, yet has an extremely comfortable look and feel on the inside.
