WHEN I PURCHASED THIS CAR, IT WAS THE CAR OF MY DREAMS. I HAD IT FOR LESS THAN 2 WEEKS, WHEN I NOTICED SLUDGE IN THE OIL AND AROUND THE CAP. I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS CONDENSATION! IT WASN'T. IT WAS THE INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET. WHEN I FIRST COMPLAINED TO SUNSHINE FORD, WHERE I BOUGHT THE CAR, IT WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY. WHEN IT FINALLY BLEW, THANK GOD 10 FEET FROM MY DRIVEWAY, IT WAS 300 MILES OVER THE WARRANTY. I HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS TRYING TO GET THEM TO FIX IT. THEY DIAGNOSED IT WRONG TO BEGIN WITH! IT ENDED UP COSTING ME AROUND 250.00. TWO WEEKS AFTER I GOT THE CAR BACK I WAS DOING 65 ON THE HIGHWAY, WHEN SOMETHING BIG DROPPED OUT FROM UNDER MY CAR. IT WAS THE COMPUTER AND THE FRONT GUARD! THEY CHARGED ME FOR THAT TOO. NOW, I STARTED UP THE CAR THE OTHER DAY AND HEARD A MUFFLER NOISE IN THE FRONT DOWN IN THE ENGINE. MY DRIVERS SIDE MANIFOLD IS CRACKED ALL THE WAY AROUND! NEEDLESS TO SAY, THIS IS ANOTHER $6-700.00 I HAVE TO PUT IN THIS CAR! ALSO, MY STEERING COLUMN, TURN SIGNALS SHORTED OUT, WERE REPLACED, BUT I STILL GET SURGING IN MY LIGHTS. I AM NOT AT ALL HAPPY WITH THIS CAR, OR CHEVY. OH! AND LET'S NOT FORGET THE SNAPPED FRAME ON THE FRONT DRIVER SEAT!
