i cant say specifically what was wrong with the car... as most of the repairs happened when i didnt care to pay attention to what my mom was driving. heres what i do recall. The transmission fell out on the road when my older bro shifted from reverse into drive (3 point turn). there were parts everywhere... it was pretty sad. Luckily... we have a friend who runs a mechanic shop, and we spend the extra grand to get the bumper to bumper warentee on the car and we ended up getting the new tranny and whatnot for next to free.
the engine is a topic where im not quite as sure what went on ... basically..... the engine had HUGE issues... and they completely replaced it @ least once.... and then did a rebuild on it or something....thankfully it runs great now that it is outside the warentee (and where I would have to pay for anything that went wrong with it)... anywho... even through all that... i still love the bonny
