| I had a 97 also, and like it enough to buy a 2001. The 2001 is
| deteriorating so rapidly I bought a Sonata to replace it, a much
| built car.
| Partial list of problems:
| Heated seat died in 2nd winter (past 36,000 miles, sorry, not covered)
| Cruise control switch is held "on" position with a broken toothpick
| control lights on steering wheel all burned out
| both rear power windows are held in place with a wood prop
| transmission was rebuilt
| one side of ventilation system blows hot air, the other side cold air
| rear brake lines rotted out
| wheel bearing replaced
| In addition, some more or less normal wear items such as an O2 sensor,
| ignition coils failed too.
Thanks for that! I'll stay with the '97
