My car is begging to get replaced

I should be getting a 2006 Mazda3 S, 4 door, manual, Winning Blue this Saturday and my current car a 96 sonata is not doing a very good job convincing me otherwise. The transmission is failing. Ive tried to see if it was a fluid problem and it doesnt appear to be but after some driving it will no longer go to 4th, so Im cruising at 60 with about 3500 to 4000 rpms. The check engine light is always on. No gascap. Lots of body damage. You cant unlock from the drivers side nor get in from the drivers side. I can get out of the drivers side but it requires some intersting work to get the door open. And the latest one is bad terminals. I have to open the hood and mess with the terminals to get the car to start. I had planned on changing my front two tires about a month ago but since I was getting a new car I decided agianst that. Well I checked my tires and the inside tread of the right front was worn down to the fibers so I HAD to replace it......less than a week before the new car and Im still having to spend money on this thing. I think thats everything, it really is a POS

Re: My car is begging to get replaced

Oh and more about the transmission, once it refuses to shift up to 4th, it also wont shift down. I can use the stick to put it in "L" and then shift into "D" but thats about it. And after some highway driving, I get back into a town and the car likes to jump randomly between gears, it keeps shifting up and down, RPMs shooting up and then back down just shoot back up again, all the while I cant accelearate, if anything Im slowing down.

Re: My car is begging to get replaced

Yeah, Hyundai didn't start to really turn themselves around as a company until 1998, so you kinda got shafted. Good luck on the new car.
