An incredible bargain
Head gasket went out after 22,000 miles. This was a manufacturer-identified problem and the improved gasket was installed under warranty. The fact that this car is autobahn-driven daily likely contributed to the old gasket's failure.
This car is regularly driven on the autobahn, often at speeds of well over 100 mph for extended periods. The car is rock-steady. It has negotiated twisty Swiss alpine roads without difficulty. For a car designed for the lazy US interstates, the car has done magnificently in Europe.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
