Rattling noise deep in engine
continually gets louder with time.
Dealer (Ivan Leonard) says problem is
piston wrist pins. Says can tear down
engine and replace but noise will come
back in about 5000 miles!! Now way to
sell this thing with the noise or after
rebuilt engine. I know others with same
problem. For one person, dealer fixed
twice but claims they can't hear a
knocking noise on third round!
Also, had front disks replaced at 5000
miles. Now they are warped at 20000
miles causing steering vibration when
braking. Also make loud creaking
noises when braking.
Nice leather interior. Plenty of cup
holders. Comfortable ride (if you don't
press the brakes!)
This engine should be completely
replaced for any customer that has the
problem. Saying the noise will simply
return after it's fixed is a huge rip
off! Also, the composition of the
disks should be modified to be more
