problem #1

Dec 162013

SeVille STS 4.9L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 102,526 miles

I bought this car w/169000 KM in Jan. 2013. I was the second owner. Immediately, and within the next 12 months, I had the following problems:

Brakes worn out

Coolant pump died = replacement $400

Replaced: water pump, brakes, pads, rotors, tie rod, rear license plate light, both side mirrors (fail motors), drivers side window actuator, broken lights on steering wheel, bad CD in Bose Head Unit, Heater failed on coldest day of year, P0420 code requiring new catalytic converter (didn't do), bad smells in interior cabin, fuel system codes, Check Engine Light, power seat failure, replace catalytic converter for $2,000.

In essence, it was one of the worst cars ever built.
