($180.00)
At 30000 miles coolant began leaking into engine from a bad head gasket.
At 34000 miles right rear brake wheel cylinder began to leak, ruined brake shoes which are not covered by warranty. ($35.00)
At a little more that 46000 miles the oil pump self destructed and took the rest of the engine with it. ($4000.00+)
A series of electrical problems haunted us from the very beginning. The head lights would collect water and blow the bulbs, left tail light shorted out and melted the light socket, both turn signal indicators would flash when making a right turn.
