    check engine light came on, I took it to Asian Auto in Savannah, GA. They told me about the gas cap problem, but also said I needed a transmision flush. The cost for this was 350.00. Looking at this site, makes me feel that this was really high. Any input?

    Replaced gas cap -- but light came back on after 50 miles or so. Mechanic said the only possible fix now was to replace the gas pipe for $400. I don't think so.

    I have had the same problem so my mechanic suggested a new gas cap. That was this past March. The check engine light was off all summer then as soon as it became cold again (the day after Halloween) the light came back on and has been on since. My mechanic gave up on it. Told me he had done everything he knew to do and I would have to take it to the dealer.

  • Well the lights don't work the way you like them to so we have to keep them on a certain way in order for they to work right, and the radio lights are bad as well, this all accured about five years after we purchased the car.
