Engine noisy - replaced plugs, oil lube filter. The transmission is noisy and should be flushed. This is a VTI transmition. Flushing the transmition may not fix the noise problem. The cost was $280. I decided not to have the flush. Too costly.
The variable transmission squeals at take off and slips at about 70mph. This problem was supposedly fixed 2 years ago under warranty. Dealer does not take responsibility, and the cost is not worth it.
We have had issues with the VTI transmission where the car will stall in extreme cold conditions.
We have gone back to the dear regarding a noise and pull at acceleration and they keep telling us that it is normal behavior for the VTI transmission. Last
