problem #2

Mar 252008

X-Type 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 90,000 miles
I treated myself to this vehicle after suffering from brain cancer for 5 years but after the experience I have had with my 2002 X type I'm not sure if it was a treat or a mistake. I have had many problems such as engine coolant sensor, O2 sensor, intake manifold, gear shift ( manual) is rough, drivers side door sticks and wont open ( embarrassing ) at first I felt like a queen in my car but now its more humiliating than anything. I broke down on the hgwy, got made fun of for my expensive vehicle being on the side of the road, the check engine light is always on. And I don't have time in life to get to enjoy this car since it is in the shop so much :(
