Headache on wheels
Transmission was very sporadic. Downshifted at random. Would not engage overdrive after 110,000. Under speed from stop, transmission would overshift into 3rd gear. Transmission was garbage.
On-board computer system did not detect a faulty alternator until 30 seconds before the car shut down completely. Battery idiot light lit sporadically. Dealer-installed alternator was nearly $400! Pep Boys did it for $260. The sad part is the alternator is at the top front and center under the hood, yet it is a nightmare to replace.
Interior is totally plastic (and leather), with the radio controls and heater control buttons all broken, but functional.
MONEY PIT. I have read nightmare stories of expense related to the electronic suspension and transmission. I got rid of mine just in time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
