can't understand how the frame could deteriorate so badly that it is virtually undrivable now.
For a car that is 17 years old, I expected more--even if we are in the north.
Have had the vehicle for about 2.5 years, and it has been dependable for our daughter, driving to and from college (some 400 miles away), generally requiring just regular maintenance overall.
But, the car is virtually junk now because of the frame--with only 126,500 miles on it. Very disappointed.
a check engine light comes on often (oxygen sensor?), and it has a lot of rust.
But the frame is the main issue. If purchasing vehicle used, have a pre-purchase check--especially the frame.
Comfortable to drive.
Frame construction needs to be improved.
Check engine light comes on too often.
