"distinctive styling" is terrible and attracts negative attention
The transmission is horrible. Automatic is definitely not the way to go. Acceleration is horrible unless the trans has had at least 5 seconds to shift down into first. A motor mount broke around 65000 miles, easily fixed by the dealer. The rear drum brakes screech horribly, the dealer says they can't do anything about it besides replace the entire brake set-up. I'm not willing to splurge on that one, not worth it on this car. The "distinctive styling" is gross. Some say there is nothing else like it, but there's nothing worse than it. You feel like you are running down the road naked and everyone is staring at you.
There is lots of room for cargo. My sister plays the double bass (approx 6 ft tall and 2 ft. wide) and we can get that and 3 people in the car comfortably. Laying the back seats down makes lots of room for luggage too. The heat and defroster work quickly and are effective.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
