Rear main started leaking at 180,000. Replaced at dealership.
Replaced heater core at 179,000 miles. Replaced at home.
Some kind of coil is leaking in the dash, still smells like anti-freeze when the heat is on. Need to replace at some point.
The 2.0 engine is slightly underpowered for the size of the vehicle.
Transmission is jerky in stop and go traffic, but no other complaints.
Cabin is roomy, however the seats get somewhat uncomfortable on long road trips.
Brakes are undersized for weight of vehicle.
Can fit three comfortably in the backseat.
Great fuel economy, averaging about 350-400 miles per tank.
This is the original motor and transmission in the car; the only things that have been replaced were the shocks, springs and tires. The dealership I bought the car from closed due to the economy, and I have since switched to another. Both of the dealerships have been very friendly and quick.
Sheet metal is starting pop near the doors, but nothing major.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
