I've only had the car for a month and already ran into problems with it. Has been back to the dealer 3 times, thank god for the 30 day warranty.
About 2 days after I got it, the engine light came on. Brought it in, they checked it, they said "nothing's wrong", OK no problem.
The light was gone for a day and a half, then the engine light came back on. Took her back in. They still don't know what was wrong.
Then the car stated to rev up on its own. Like every time you would push the clutch in, it would rev up to 3000 RPM's. I recall putting her in park. Had the emergency brake on, and letting go of the clutch in 1st gear, and the car stayed at 3000 RPM's. Brought her in again, and they couldn't figure it out.
After 3 weeks, I brought it back into the dealer, and found out the computer module for the revving was gone, the MAP sensor was gone, the catalytic converter was gone also. Plus they had to replace the 2 strut springs, and fix the A/C in it. If I would have had to pay for this, I calculated it would have run me up to $2500.00 dollars.
This car is my first new car, and even with all the problems, I still like my car very much. Just for the fact that it's a newer car for me. I've always had older cars. Like an 87 Fire Bird, a 84 Chev 1/2 ton, and the latest one, a 78 Z28 Camaro.
This car is great handling, comfortable seats, great room in the back. It has big trunk spacem and lots of room in it. Great stereo system in it. :)
Easy to put a car seat in it, has 2 safety hooks for the car seat.
For a 2.4L she can pull, and has great pick up when fixed up :). I got it for an OK price, but hey that's what you have to pay when you go through a dealership. She won't be worth what I paid for in the end of my 5 year term, but I think she's a great little car.
