Good car. Many reliable and fun miles!
Window regulators break (common problem).
Engine blew up and warped heads.
Rear wiper issues (switch).
Peeling clearcoat (probably lousy prior body work).
Got the car used in good condition, well maintained with good documentation. The engine overheated and had to be replaced shortly after we got it. Replaced with a Jasper. Still runs well, developing a leak in the power steering rack (expected with over 200k). No tranny problems ever.
Only complaint is that some parts are hard to find or overly expensive for what they are (window regulators are getting to be hard to find everywhere). Some exhaust pieces seemed overpriced as well.
Even the SOHC engine torque steers pretty hard, can't imagine what the DOHC is like.
I find the driver's space uncomfortable, not sure what it is about it, but I have never liked it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
