Some engine hesitation in the low speed range has recently developed, but this has proved difficult to diagnose since it is an intermittent problem.
On-going problems with the air conditioning system have been expensive to repair and largely unsuccessful. The evaporator and the condenser have been replaced twice, but both have given up the ghost again. The solution was simply to forget about air conditioning and open the windows if necessary.
Suspension is sometimes noisy, particularly the right front strut assembly which makes intermittent clanking sounds on uneven road surfaces.
Frequent alignments have been necessary to correct a tendency of the steering wheel to remain off-centre.
The clear coat on the rear door is rapidly deteriorating and will likely require a re-paint shortly.
The car handles well and provides a very comfortable ride.
The interior is quite roomy and well appointed. I've had many positive comments about the trim, colour scheme and general decor.
Parking the car can be a challenge, particularly when reversing into a tight spot. The size and style of the rear window tends to limit visibility.
Gas consumption is reasonable for a car of this size, although fuel economy has slipped somewhat in the past six months.
Other than air conditioning, general repairs have not been particularly expensive or frequent.
