This piece of junk has same transmission problem as everyone else is listing here, and this is just one of the MANY problems I have suffered with this thing. Worst car I have ever owned by far.
I was driving doing 40miles/h ,suddenly the belts got broken,i went to buy the belts and fit them, then it failed to start,sound like no compression.
