The engine is just the most recent problem. We went ahead and bought the extended warranty even though it is usually never used. This time we used it numerous times. We have had problems with the electric windows, the starter has been replaced, the fuel pump, the engine head, the electronic locks currently do not work. It has just been a real lemon. We just do not know what to do. This time the engine blew and there was no clue that anything was wrong. We have been stranded several times and last night just barely made it home.
