Excellent SUV, dependable, economical, turns on a dime
Interior hose to windshield wipers snapped off at 70,000 miles.
Easy to fix.
Convertible top threads finally falling apart. Had to hand-sew several times. Easy to replace top at $149.95.
This little 4-banger is one of the best cars I have owned. At 100,800 miles, she is still going strong. Excellent gas mileage, great on mountain roads, considering it is a 2-wheel drive. Drove right through a flood with no problem. High enough off the ground not to "bottom out".
Maintenance very inexpensive as long as all fluids are changed frequently according to manual.
Freon is just about gone in air conditioner, however, considering the mileage, it has done very well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
