Engine and brake problems

ReviewRattling 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.
Best FeaturesNice leather interior. Plenty of cup holders. Comfortable ride (if you don't press the brakes!)
Worst FeaturesThis 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 durable.
