Buy something a little more reliable
At 3 months I had to pay $35.00 to have a thermostat put in since the old one went bad.
At 9 months I had to replace the master cylinder. That was a $250.00 venture.
At a year I had to have the transmission rebuilt. That was another $1800.00.
Also at the year mark the Airbag light came on and the horn stopped working. I was told it had nothing to do with the recalled airbags, but the clock spring in the steering column that would cost me $72.00 + $250.00 - $280.00 to get fixed so that it doesn't not work if I get in an accident. Or it will work while I'm driving for no apparent reason.
Also at the year mark the radio just stopped working.
The air conditioner compressor is supposed to cost me anywhere from $675.00 - $800.00 to get fixed.
There is a leak in the dash behind the glove box compartment. Every time it rains now my carpet gets soaked. A co worker had the same problem and he said it had something to do with a seal that needed to be replaced. (Which cost him about $400.00 on his truck)
So long as you put extra money aside, owning one of these vehicles isn't too bad. When they break down its never anything small or cheap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
