It really does look like a brick..
Washer pump motor was not working.
Driver and rear passenger door locks broke.
Interior trim slowly warping.
ABS module needed replaced.
Exterior trim faded.
Trunk struts failed.
Cup holders are horrible.
I purchased this car as a beater for daily driving to work. For 1700 bucks I got a straight and narrow, solid running vehicle with decent gas mileage. The ride is comfortable and it handles quite well. All the issues (minus the ABS) are quick, easy, and inexpensive fixes.
I replaced the spark plugs, oil & filter, and the fuel filter as a start. A tranny filter and fluid change are on the horizon.
I'm looking forward to doubling the miles on this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
