New, engine would stall on restarts after running for a long period of time. Example, difficult starting the car after shopping. Dealer said it was bad gas.
Engine continues to have problems on restarts. Dealer: Identified faulty coils.
Same problem with restarts, dealer replaced another coil. They only change the ones that they find are bad.
Changed coils again.
Problems with restarting, dealer indicated that it maybe something else. Dealer kept the vehicle for four days, no problems were found.
Tail lights go out then come on. Dealer found no problems, they indicated that I need to bring it in when the lights are out.
Sun visor broken. Cheap plastic! Dealer replaced.
Want to get a different vehicle, but can't afford it.
Radio went out, Dealer replaced.
Blower motor makes noise when temp. falls below 40 degrees. Dealer says, "normal".
Check engine light comes on then goes out. Faulty coolant sensor.
Engine won't start! Went to the store and the car wouldn't start. Tried for an hour before towing to the dealer. Dropped off at the dealer and the vehicle started. Dealer would not cover the towing expenses because they couldn't find any problem. "It must be in my head"
Car died on the road driving home from the dealer after the tow. Walked back to the dealer and explained that my car doesn't like me! They connected a tester to the engine and said that the oxygen sensor is faulty.
Engine runs good. It only took 30'000 mile for them to get it right.
Transmission is slipping when cold. Dealer indicated that they will replace it when it fails.
50'000 miles warranty expired. Unknown to me I thought I purchased an extended package and had the paperwork. Dealer indicated that everyone receives the paperwork, the extended warranty needs to be in the system and is not.
52'000 miles, transmission failed. Only will drive in 1st. gear. I have the 5 spd automatic and will only do 20 MPH in 1st. gear. Dealer says they will be glad to replace the transmission, unfortunately, at my cost since the warranty has expired.
Don't have the money to fix and no buyers. I purchased a Plymouth Horizon for $600.00. The best car I ever had.
Very dis-hearted by the whole experience.
I have always had used vehicles and was so pleased to purchase a new car. I thought I was buying a quality vehicle that would last me a decade. unfortunately I was mistaken.
The car was fun to drive during those few days when everything was working.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
