This car will still be going strong in ten years
Driver's side power window broke at 120,000 miles.
Sunroof accumulated water, which poured on my head when opened. Happened at 140,000 miles, and was reported to by typical. Didn't happen again after fixing, though.
Valve cover gasket went out at 195,000 miles.
Alignment was fussy.
Bearing in transmission wore out, making second gear grind every time, unless you paused briefly before engaging.
Clutch went out at 170,000 miles.
Fun and sporty sedan to drive, with spirited acceleration and excellent handling.
Excellent gas mileage (near 30mpg).
At 200,000 miles, this car was as good as it was at 100,000.
Seats are hard, and hard on your back for even short trips.
Lots of options, and an excellent value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
