I'm going to miss it!!
Well, where do I begin? I bought the car during the day. The first night I drove it I found out it had no dash lights! Come to find out that they aren't just $1 lights. It's a whole unit that cost me around $60.
A week later my alternator blew. There was another $150.
Then about 6 months later my heater core broke. I live outside of the city and that was a real treat to get it to the mechanic.
Then my brake went out. Not just a simple brake job. The cylinder in my rear tires went. So every time I would step on the brakes the back tires would lock up.
I think it was my timing chain next. They had to take off the water pump to get to the timing belt so I had them replace that too. It was bound to blow anyway. Why pay for labor twice.
Then my car started jerking and cutting out while driving. When I would try to start it I would have to shake the car. The previous owner had a remote start on it and when they took it off they didn't connect the wires to the spark plugs and fuel pump tight enough. It took my mechanic and myself 3 months to figure this out. Two months later I had to have them reconnected because they worked loose.
The stabilizer bars when next.
A month later the starter started to grind. Then all of a sudden the car wouldn't start at all. Not the starter!I found out that the head gasket blew or I cracked the head. That was a sad day.
Although I had a lot of problems with my car. I loved it. In fact my brother is trying to bring it back to life. It would be great to drive it again.
It was fun to drive. I handled great.
I like the red dash lights. I think you can read them easier and they look cool.
I'm going to miss it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
