Originally, the front speakers vibrated from high audio volume. The dealer corrected the problem.
Under warranty, the air conditioner evaporator coil began to smell moldy and the dealer replaced the coil... but added that they didn't have to do it, but just did it for customer loyalty. Hum... The smell is returning at about 60,000 miles (5 years later).
Under warranty, the rear torsion bars began to make noise on turns. The dealer tightened the connection and corrected the problem. The noise re-surfaced recently (at 60,000 miles) and I haven't had it researched as to the source.
It's really a fantastic car. Great gas mileage, reliable, and remains in style after 7 years and a model change. You can park it next to any other car in its class (few that really compare) and it will always come out the winner.
The front seats are very comfortable with the side bolsters holding you in firmly.
The shift throw could be a bit shorter and an adjustable clutch would be nice...
The back seat is good for children under about seven years old or occasional bags. Adults that were your friends when they got in, wouldn't be when they got out -- no matter how short the ride.
