December 2000, the vacuum leak in the front caused the vehicle to lose power. It was taken into moody's to be fixed, they blew a fuse for the cigarette lighter. May 14, 2001 brake and ABS light went on after car stalled in parking lot. Took to dealer, they had to order parts, it took a week. Dealer fixed it on May 22, 2001, they replaced the electronic brake and traction control, replaced four wheel anti-lock.. the same problem occured a few days later. Reported to dealer, took it in for repairs, there was a wire that was frayed. They replaced the wire and then blew the cigarette fuse again. Steering wheel started making a crunching plastic sound while turning and while shut off on June 6, 2001. Reported to dealer on same day. Took it in morning of June 7, 2001, they found a bulliten on that problem that was sent out by the manufacturer. They cannot find parts in the Twin Cities area, I have to wait a week or more for parts to come in.( dot number: )
