Summary:

It's a boat anchor

Faults:

The main computer (ECM) failed after 2 weeks. The dealership had no explanation. I was stranded in the middle of the highway in rush-hour. Part was backordered nationally. They pulled the part from a loaner vehicle, but it didn't work. So they're going to try a new computer from Japan. If I'm lucky, I might get my car back in a another week.

General Comments:

Fun to drive. Allegedly extremely reliable. Comfortable and well appointed. But mine's a boat anchor at this point. I'll wait another week or two, but after a month without the car, I'm getting a refund. If they could tell me that I, personally, did something to cause this, at least I could change the way I drive. But they have no explanation.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
