Battery replaced at 50k.
Auto headlamps have never worked well-they come on when its sunny and won't come on when it's a cloudy day!
Gas cap cover freezes in real cold weather.
Engine sometimes stalls, not very often.
In 2007 the steering knuckle and front wheel assembly were replaced at 82k-very expensive (over 2k)
Overall, an excellent car for the money. I buy these types of cars when they are 1-2 yrs old so they have depreciated some.
This car has held up very well over the years, never has broken down and has only failed to start once-right after I tried to program the door locks. I reset it and it started right up. The paint finish still looks like new and the interior has only minor wear for a car that is used daily.
Handling is fair, some roll around tight corners.
Very spacious and comfy ride (although not as good as my wife's 2003 Town Car)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
