The Check Engine light on the vehicle's dashboard is often an indicator of a problem, and it functions as an engine management system to draw attention to certain issues within the engine. The light cannot turn off until the error is resolved or the light is manually reset. Sometimes the Check Engine light may be the problem if it remains on after the problem has been managed.

Some common problems that the vehicles experience center on the transmission. Some transmissions are very costly to repair, and many models feature automatic transmission systems that may slip between the gears. Sometimes other common issues include automatic transmissions that shift too noisily or labor with movement.
