I must have got a raw deal
Transmission went out ($1,980).
Brake pads and cylinders went bad and were replaced.
Right front brake hose was busted.
Idles at more than 2,000 RPM sometimes.
The car's appearance has been kept up with only one tear in the interior which is not even visible without really looking for it.
New master cylinder.
Even with the new transmission the car is so slow, I clocked my 0-60 at over 15 seconds!!
It's horrible, a lot is to do with the fact that if I floor it, it goes into 2nd gear fine, but when the RPM reaches around 5000 (by the way it's great to have a tacc) in 2nd the damned thing won't shift into 3rd.
I have to let up on the gas to let it shift, I have no idea why it does that.
The car is very strong though, when my brake line busted, I actually rear-ended my friend in the middle of New Orleans, and all that happened to my car was the front license plate was bent backwards under my bumper. Put a nasty scratch in my friend's brand new Civic EX though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
