problem #5

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,320 miles
Oil leaked from failed head gasket or cracked head, exhaust leak from head or manifold. Speedometer dial stop working. The car only has 30000 miles on it. My repair man wants $500 just to tear down the engine to see if it is the gasket or a cracked head, and thats just the labor and not including parts. This is a safty problem that should be cause for a recall. How many complaints or lives will it take before NHTSA takes action aganist this car manufacturing company?

, but I can not find any wet carpet or seats. I have had the interior steamed cleaned and deordorized, but the smell returns in a day or so. My daughter, who drives the car, smells from being in the car. The smell is so bad that it is impossible to drive any lenght of time.
