This is a great reliable car, most of the time it is comfortable and fun to drive! I am a mechanic and I am right up with anything that might go wrong along with preventive maintenance being done on time;(car has 140000 miles. My only issue is that the car has a rattle in the front(I believe right front fender area), that I can not locate; front end is tight, links, ball joints, struts, strut bushings, along with rear end is also tight. Any help from anybody would be great!
safe feeling when I drive it
Have a replaceable automatic transmission filter. I never had any problems with the transmission, because I change the oil about 3 times/year, however there is no filter (serviceable)to change!
it's been a while since you commented about the rattle, but just wanted to let you know a few checkpoints if you're having the rattle on the passenger side of the car. Check your glove compartment box and lid.
Also make sure your pollen(cabin) filter is secured tightly this also gets quite loud and rattly.
Hope it helps
