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.
shifts hard going from 1st to second 2nd to third and sometimes 4th to 5th the more I accelerate the harder the bang
