Awesome first car for teenagers
Right rear brake pad snapped, drove on it for a week until replaced. Had to replace rotor at same time. 70000 Miles.
Alternator went at about 85000 miles.
Rotor was going on left rear brake, had rotor and pads replaced. 95500 miles.
For a vehicle of this size, it is fast off of the line. The engine is powerful, but it feels like its dying. Need to get a tuneup on it.
Transmission is hard on shifting when slowing down, can feel it kick into second and first. Doesn't really bother me.
Seats are amazing, and even when there are 5 people in car, me and 4 friends, it still handles like a dream and is able to accelerate.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
