Bought this car used as is with 107k miles, dealer who sold it to me stated it had been completely throughly checked. Lies. Not even 600 miles after purchasing transmission went out on it left me stranded on a holiday weekend 200 miles from home and 200 miles from destination. Had to replace tie rods, wheel bearings, clutch, struts, gaskets, etc list can go on. This thing has been a penny picker since day one it’s now paid off does good in snow if you have good tires. Gas tank is faulty ONLY 12 gal tank! Tiny. The sensor or something is out when fueling I have to barely squeez nozzle to fuel up and the gage is broken. I regularly maintain this vehicle, but it’s very costly after so much stuff keeps going wrong with it. I’ll never get my moneys worth out of it.
I don’t know how so many crazy, all of the sudden break downs can happen to one vehicle. An alternator the completely shuts down. At his and a that always with zero warning. This is the most dangerous vehicle I have owned and I did own a pinto and a Germlin. Worst car ever!!! Yes I did maintain the vehicle with regular up keep. Purchased in July of 2012 with 45,000 miles on it for $ 12,900.
