Comfortable, but poorly designed
The problems with the car I had could be from the previous owner's lack of care.
Within the first day I had it, I had all the colors of smoke; black smoke, blue smoke and white smoke. The engine needed a complete rebuild, which cost me well over a grand in parts. Within two weeks of having the engine rebuilt, my transmission went out. It was stuck in second gear and would not move. That job cost me well over a grand. About the time I got it back from the shop, it wouldn't pass emissions, so, I had to replace the O2 sensor and had to have a new exhaust installed with catalytic converter. It still wouldn't pass. I had to plate my car at my grandfather's place where there was no emissions. After I had the exhaust replaced, my passenger side door speaker blew. I just disconnected the wire. I eventually replaced all the speakers because they all slowly went. Shortly after that, my heater core went in the middle of the winter. More money out of my pocket. The alignment was horrible, I had so much play in my steering. I had the car aligned and it wasn't even a month later, my car's steering was back the way it was before.
The car had decent acceleration. Definitely nothing to brag about. Let's face it, it looks like something and old lady would drive to church.
Seats are pretty comfortable. A lot of my friends preferred my car when it came to long trips to the clubs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
