Guys- Excellent Car- Has 108K miles- I just love the way it drives!! I never had a Car that compares to it. But... But I have run into some major repairs lately. Can you share your opinions on the following problems. Do u see any future for this Car? Should I get rid of it? 1: The pulley tensioner slackened- the serpentine belt got loose- the power steering pump got busted and I almost crashed the car due to sudden loss of steering. They tell me that I need a new pump- new belt- (some 800 dollars). I spent the money and got it fixed. 2: The wipers stopped working the other day- Found that the rear wiper motor is gone. Cost of new motor is $ 300 only. Currently I got the rear wiper disconnected. Should I get New motor? 3: I see oil leaking from the top of the engine- They say that it needs a new gasket - Cost unknown yet. 4: Two years ago breaks were re done with new rotors. The rotors were once machined after a year. The car now shakes crazy when you break. I got the 'new rotors' remachined again and the 'shake' is gone now. But they tell me that I would need to replace the rotors again soon if the shake comes back. Cost of repair (new rotors- etc.) - unknown yet.
