This is an used auto but it has many problems, some were told to me by a mechanic that were recalls, there are many things wrong such as the floors fill up with water when it rains, the door hinges have rusted and broke, the brakes squeal, the motor leaks oil around the sealsthe fan doesn't kick on to cool the motor nor does the gauge register when it is hot. Are these things that the recalls take care of?
