I had to replace the alternator at the time of purchase. ($120.00 parts and labor)
Plugs and wires were bad at time of purchase, causing a horrible misfire.
Car was, over all, poorly maintained.
Since I bought the car it has been smooth sailing. After the replacement of the plugs and wires, an oil change/engine flush, and alternator replacement this car is nothing less than a front-wheel-drive rocket.
The cockpit is very driver oriented which makes me feel comfortable when I drive.
This car is, by far, the best car I have ever driven.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
