While driving the car feels as if the transmission is failing, every turn you hear knocking and bumping, recently was told that the rack and pinion needs to replaced the car has only 60,000 miles. I have had it for 2 years and I have had several proplems. My ac works however only the passenger side of the heating unit works. The knock soud occurred immediately after purchase the dealer ship sad nothing was wrong with the car. I have a friend with the same vehicle and had the same issue with the knock and bumping fortunaely there car was totalled and they were not injuried at least they are no longer resonsible for this lemon.

Owner had to replace the rack and pinion steering, also, owner had replaced a set of brake pads and also had to replace the fuel tank due to a tank failure. Vehicle was purchased brand new and has 13,000 miles yet it has been one problem after another and the manufacturer is not doing anything to assist the consumer.
