I bought this car with only 19k miles on it. In three years time, I have had to replace almost every single engine part. The cup holder pulled off in my hand. The rear mirror leaked the auto-darkening stuff so you couldn't see out of it at all. The visors broke off. The gas gauge broke. The low tire & service engine lights have been on for 2 years regardless of all of the work that has been done. The heat and A/C went out. One window will only roll down halfway. The interior portion of the doors are separating from the exterior - which is severely rusting. This car is a piece of junk. It costs me about $2000 a year to keep it running. I am going to buy a foreign car as soon as I can.
If you bought the car with 19k miles on it you should of had a warranty, which should have taken care of all these problems.
Sounds like you bought a car that was already torn up.
These cars are built very well and usually last up to 300,000 miles and longer.
I'm sorry that you had all these problems, but it sounds like you got a lemon.
As for the rust it just depends on where you live.
If you live in the SW(the desert) you will not recieve any rust; however, if you live near the coast then you will get rust with any car no matter what.
For you to sit here and say all this about this car is very unintelligent as you did not provide any factual evidence such as why you didn't get a warranty (was it wrecked already), why is it rusting (do you live by the coast),
the gas gauge problem is a 20 dollar problem.
It sounds like you are lazy and don't take care of your cars like other people who have reviewed these cars.
I hope whoever reads this takes it with a grain of salt as you don't provide any information to back up your claims and view this car and possibly life as a half empty glass of water.
I hope you take care of your next car.
