Known Problems

The cup holder in the front center arm rest is flimsy and may break, making it impossible to close the cup holder assembly.

Ignition coil failure may cause the engine to run poorly. The fault can be intermittent and may or may not illuminate the Check Engine Light.

Engine oil leaks in several different areas are common. I may be necessary to clean the affected area and recheck to determine the exact cause of the leak.

A growling noise may be noticed on deceleration from higher speeds. This type of noise is commonly caused by a bearing failure in the rear differential. Replacement of the rear differential is often necessary to correct this problem.

The upper bushings on the front shock absorbers are prone to failure and may produce a rattling/jingling noise as the car is driven over bumps.

The exterior door handles are of poor quality; they frequently break or do not offer enough leverage to open the door from the outside.
