Reliable; more so than our Toyota.
The horn pad on the steering wheel has failed twice.
The master cylinder and metering valves have failed.
The air conditioning pump has become noisy.
A very reliable car.
An excellent engine; the 2.3L is actually the old Falcon straight 6 from the 1960's, with two cylinders lopped off, so it is a very strong 4 cylinder. It has a chain, instead of the usual Japanese timing belt (that needs to be replaced every 80,000 km.)
The seats are so, so fine.
The performance is fine.
The gas mileage is around 28 mpg average.
I like it.
It has cost much less (for repairs) than our Toyota of the same year.
There is no timing belt to replace, a-la the Japanese.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
