I bought this car 2 years ago and I have had to replace the power steering pump twice.
Now my transmission is going because it makes a noise and it jerks when I change it from reverse to drive. It is not worth the time, money, or effort.
The next vehicle I get I will buy a foreign one. Because for some reason we Americans can't build a good dependable car that is affordable. It is all junk. I had an 01 Mitzsubishi Montero Sport for 4 years and never had problems out of it.
the only reason I got rid of it was because it was costing me in gas. I wished I would have just paid for the gas.
Make it more dependable and don't make it like a hot wheels car.
