problem #1

Oct 152003


  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles
Computer controls locked down the car. The dealer said that the computer was resetting when it done this and there was nothing they could do. The windshield is separating from the car and the dealer will not cover this as a defect because my car is the only one they know of.
