With proper care, this car has remained in "like new" condition, inside and out, even after 7 years
There was a recall involving a problem with the cruise control. Otherwise, the only mechanical part replaced was the belts, after normal wear and tear.
The only disappointing factor is that the red paint seems to be fading over time. It has not been garaged.
This car is quick, responsive, and totally fun to drive. The sound system is still great, and seats still look new. The car still has the solid, tight feel of a brand new car. However, it's been well-maintained. It has never quit me. I bought the extended warranty, but never used it one time, nor did I use the complimentary year of roadside assistance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
