The car was OK at the beginning. Purchased for my daughter who was in high school. After about a year, things started going wrong, starting with the check engine light. It would go intermittent for a while. My mechanic looked at it and said that it appeared to be a problem with a cylinder, but since it was intermittent, it could be a problem with the electrical system.
The next problem was the stereo only operated the right speakers. In addition, at the same time the blinker for the turn signals stopped working. Unable to trace the problem for this to the electrical system, so who knows what's up. There are no service bulletins on this problem.
This weekend, brought it back to my mechanic for the check engine light. Turns out it has one bad cylinder and one on the way out. Got it back from the mechanic while we decide what to do, and now the windshield wipers don't work. My mechanic told me this is basically a "throw away" car like the old Saturns. Problem is, we are still making payments on it.
Piece of junk...wouldn't recommend this car to my worst enemy.
Major piece of garbage. Now I know why they discontinued the model, and why they almost went out of business.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
