    Shortly after purshasing the car (had 150k at time of purchase) I had to have a transmission valve replaced. Within a month the trans quit entirely. About 9 months later the new (refurbished) trans is leaking fluid. I have to put a qt or so in every month or two, about $16 a qt.

    Severe leaking of transmission fluid, not easily diagnosed, and definitely not a cheap fix!
