problem #4

Feb 012003


  • 17,669 miles
Intermediate steering shaft has been a problem with the vehicle since reaching 17,669 miles. I had it replaced under warranty the first time and have paid for it to be replaced after the 3 year warranty ran out. The shaft continues to make cracking noises when turning the vehicle. This seems to be a part defect since a lot of people online have written about the same issue. I have had the shaft replaced three times and it last about a year before it starts to make a cracking noise. The power window regulator is a defect in this vehicle but it has not been recalled. I have had the regulator replaced for all four windows and now I am starting to have to replace the regulators again for all four windows. The regulator replacement is expensive ($400+ for each window).
