Fabulous value


A control unit in the transmission failed. The driver's side window failed due to a broken bracket which I fixed myself. The only problems in 4 years.

General Comments:

This is by far the best car I have ever owned. I would highly recommend it. The only design shortcomings are that the front bucket seats are not that comfortable on long trip and the climate control could be more consistent. However acceleration is excellent. Reliability excellent. Gas mileage is unbelievable - average 26 miles per gallon. I would buy again in a heartbeat.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
