This is my first car and I love it to death. The V6 provides decent power (not exactly a hot rod) but is good enough for passing/merging. I've beat this car pretty bad and it still runs like a gem. The motor has quite a bit of life left in it. The transmission is a little beat up (neutral dropping the car doesn't help that though) I think with a fluid change and some various transmission chemicals it will last until I get another car. The car was wrecked on the passenger side and totaled, but the car still runs great. The strut was bent, and It needed a new control arm to move again, only about $200 in repairs. Through the abuse and torment I've caused this car I still get 25MPG City and about 32MPG Highway, great fuel economy. I recommend this car to any first driver or someone looking for a little economy car. They are great values and very underrated.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
