A lot of money for too many problems!!
Rough shifting and hesitation into second at 3,000 miles, feels like someone kicked you from behind and dealer could not fix the problem.
20,000 miles, stabilitrak constantly turns itself off, dealer tried 2 times to fix, not fixed.
20,000 miles, traction control turns itself off, dealer tried 2 times to fix, not fixed.
25,000 miles, windshield wipers (not the blades) literally fell apart. Had to pay $50 to fix.
26,000 miles, presets for seat controls no longer work.
26,000 miles, remote car starter stopped working.
26,000 rust appeared on front quarter panel.
This car is very comfortable and rides smoothly once it gets going.
Hesitates and then shifts very hard into second gear. Had vehicle out to dealer several times and they could not fix the problem. It got better over time but still does it.
Handled great in the snow the first winter I drove it. Now it slides all over the place! Seems like it started doing this when the "traction control off" light kept coming on. Dealer can't fix.
Rust (a lot of it!) appeared on the front driver's side quarter panel. Dealer refuses to fix stating that I must have hit a rock at some point and caused this. Nobody can see any evidence of this except them. Seems to me like it was a bad paint job to begin with (I can see bondo near the rust spots. I have never used bondo on anything in my life!)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
