Wires keep getting cut by the car harness, why are the wires located in the harness? this is getting dangerous driving without brake lights is a hazard. The fuel line / pump has never worked correctly, and who ever heard of a transmission going out at 50,000 miles. Please note I have never towed anything with this car and I am a very careful female driver without any accidents or speeding tickets, oil is changed every 3,000 miles, all highway driving. Please help! this car is a disaster and a hazard. The leaking fuel line could have killed me, no brake lights...obvious issue. Thank you! liz zimmer.
