I bought this car around 07 with 84,000 on it about 10,000 miles later the head gasket blow. I fixed it in about a week then 5000 miles down the road while I was getting a brain tumor removed the motor blew on the highway leaving my wife all by herself with no help at night. This car is awful do not buy one don't even think about it get something else avoid at all cost.
you bought a car that was abused and beaten, these cars are not junk and are one of the safest you can buy, if you don't take care of a car these things can and will happen, i don't care if its brand new or 30 years old. just because you got unlucky does not mean all of them are junk. I know someone who has had one since new in 99, not had a problem with the car other than the ac.
