Have you had any problems with the car?
* Fuel pump failed at 55,000 miles, causing vehicle to lose power and go into 'limp mode'. * Radiator fan switch stuck in 'on' position, draining battery. * Front wipers jump across screen due to motor problems. * Exhaust manifold fractured causing rattling. All problems were repaired under extended warranty.
