The vehicle was purchased at a used car dealership with 46,000 miles on it. While traveling fluid had to be replaced every 800 miles. On 7/13/2003 the head gasket blew.

Antifreeze leaks came through A/C heat vent. Anytime air or heat was blowing a odor got inside vehicle. 7 times consumer has been told something different. Heater core/ intake manifold, and radiator has been acknowledged as the problem. This time water pump was the cause. Unles vehicle duplicatef the problem, dealer would not be able to find the remedy.

I've owned this car for 3 1/2 years. In past year, encountered many expensive problems. Head gasket blew and water pump replaced at approx 56,000 miles. Control arm bushings need replacement at 60,000 miles? I drive this car to and from work each day, no long trips, avg mileage per day = 10 miles possibly. Cannot understand why 5 year old car is having major problems w/low mileage. Maintain it regularly.

Every time you turn the temperature button on to hot or turn the heat on you can smell antifreeze. I have taken the car back many times and to be looked at and I keep being told that dealer can not smell anything. Finally they supposedly replaced heater core, water pump and intake manifold gaskets (twice).

My husband and I have taken our car back to the dealership back and forth since 06/19/00. Every time we take it back then here is a new problem with our vehicle. After the vehicle was fixed it still was leaking coolant and not retaining it. They said when I picked my vehicle up they said it needs a water pump. Not only have we spent $1129.86 in the matter of 4 weeks but they wanted an additional 275 -300 more for the water pump. I feel as though that the true problem was the water pump to begin with but they decided that I'm not smart about what is going on with cars. I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could investigate this company out and if their is a way for them to correctly fix my problems or reimburse for my same problem. My vehicle is still making funny noises and still leaking coolant after a $585.88 bill. We took the vehicle back to the dealer on 07/17/00 but its still doing the same thing. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
