Hub assembly/wheel bearings on driver and passenger sides, replaced twice, covered under the 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
All 4 tires replaced twice, that's 3 sets of tires including the originals that were on the car when purchased. Basically tires are needed every 25,000 miles.
Pads, rotors, and calipers... replaced once.
Exterior door molding/trim on the driver's side passenger door came loose in the third year of ownership; not covered under warranty.
Dexcool/antifreeze disappears from the car approximately every 8 months. I typically can tell when it's low, because the heat stops working, or it only works when driving, not idling.
Tire pressure sensors are always malfunctioning, really should be recalled. I typically just ignore them.
* My personal pet peeves: interior carpeting (gray) stains incredibly easily, the car is easily prone to dents and dings, a slight nick will easily remove paint to the grey primer coat. Back seat is unbelievably cramped, my 9 & 6 year old can hardly fit. Factory radio woefully under powers the speakers; replaced the unit with a JVC radio, which sounds 10 times better.
All in all, the car is a solid runner, however future buyers beware, this car has solid hub assembly/wheel bearing issues, which are $700.00 each side to replace; they need to be replaced approximately every 35,000 miles.
The car is not good on tires.
Approximately 60,000 miles of the miles on car are all beltway miles. Perfect car for the beltway driving, terrible car for city driving, as the transmission struggles to change gear in stop and go traffic; the car will jerk. I have learned to accelerate slowly to prevent rough gear changes. On the beltway this car moves and handles very well; it's meant to be on long stretches of highway, so it suits my needs, but if I need a inner city car, this would not be the one. The car is tough, I really can't complain... yet.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
