A great combination of comfort, style and performance
Had to replace front u-joint due to contact with a piece of road debris. This was a major undertaking at a cost of about $1,200.
Nothing else has gone wrong.
I use this car as my daily commuter (100 km return, city and highway) and it handles this task superbly. Great performance, reasonable economy and very comfortable. Because of my commute, I purchased an automatic, but next time will go back to a 5 speed. I expect to keep this car for another couple of years and don't expect any major problems. I still have recommended maintenance carried out on time by a dealer; it's expensive, but well worth it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
