I felt like i got a decent price on the car. Over the next 8 months I noticed the steering popping and black smoke under full throttle. I took it in for repairs and they greased up the front end and said they couldnt dupplicate the smoking. So the next day the steering still pooping and still smoking another issue came up. The engine started knocking. Me being a mechanic myself knew it was of major concern. They had the car 3 weeks and rebuilt the engine. The mechanic spilt oil all over the engine and the whole undercarriage was saturated with oil. I cleaned it all off myself along with tying wires that were left hanging and sensors that were not plugged in. Now about 3 weeks later it runs good (steerring still popping) its leaking oil in my garage. Looks to be the rear main seal or the oil pan gasket. Im not satisfied with the repairs on my vehicle and am affraid there will never be an end to this situation. I bought this car for its reliability and good reviews. I have not yet seen the reliabity pay off when its in the shop most of the time for repairs and the repairs not being done correctly or half way done. Was this review helpful to you?
