While driving entire electrical system went out. Had no interior or outside lights. Had some leakage from transmission and engine. Took vehicle to dealership, and mechanic repaired leakages/starter/head gaskets/ oil pressure switch, and windshield wipers. Water leak from the trunk to rear floor boards caused corrosion. Also, signal light failed to go off. Consumer states the vehicle had been involved in several accidents befor E purchase.

The defective turn signal system malfunctioned, causing the driver, while turning the left signal, to hold down the switch in order for the left turn signal to work. When operating the right turn signal it won't go back to its position, but consumer has to manually return the right turn signal to proper position. Also the driver's side seatbelt adjuster stays in one position, causing the adjuster not to work in the other two positions. Will be taking to the dealer.
