Takes a lickin' keeps on tickin'
The head gasket blew at 150000km. Before that, not much else went wrong.
At 200000km, the water pump went, and through off the timing belt. It was hard to diagnose, but not too bad to fix.
In total, I spent $2500 on the car, excluding oil changes, but including tires. That's not bad for putting up with Canadian winters over ten year.
Great little car. Peppy for a 2.0L.
Don't get rear ended by a Cadillac, that's why I am no longer driving it.
Overall that car is GREAT!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
