Recall on master brake cylinder. 4 wheel alignment (toe) was grossly out of spec from the factory. TPMS is not reliable.

The powertrain.
2005 0 My complaints about this car are limited, but critical. In the time I had this vehicle, I drove less than 80k miles. In that time, I had to replace a head gasket (At 50k), and was about to do so again (at 79k) before I made the decision to sell it and get something else. The window motors are attached to the windows using plastic pieces that break easily, and are non-replaceable, requiring the entire window motor and armature to be replaced (For around $200, just for parts) rather than replacing the 10 cent plastic clip that broke. The CD player started acting up at around 25k miles, and by 45k was dead and gone. I admit that this was several years into ownership, but it wasn't that frequently used.

Entire car feels like a rattle trap. Transmission going bad after only 30,000 miles. Starts hard.

This car was in the shop more days then I actually drove it. Worst vehicle I have ever owned.

1. Paint poor in 1st year, chips off 2. Engine sensors die often (recalls galore) 3. Pre-Catalytic converter disintegrates and particles are sucked into engine and kill it. 4.Butterfly valve screws and plate fall into engine from intake manifold. & mo
