A good car, but not worth keeping with high miles
Engine mounts snapped right after I bought it.
At 120,000 miles I had to replace the exhaust, fuel pump, entire ignition system, the brake calipers, and rebuild the valves.
This car was fine for the first 100,000 miles and I knew the previous owner who never had a problem with it.
When it's time to make repairs the star bit and metric combination is a bear to work with.
The gas mileage was pretty good and comfort was good.
Mechanically it seems that this car was designed to be junked at 100,000 miles. A true example of cars as a consumable item.
It didn't cost me much to run, but the repair bills really added up. I've spent thousands of dollars in parts alone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
