Best Car in this price range
There are only two things that have issues in this car, both very minor. The gas pedal creeks a little, because I was having to drive this car to the job site. (Dirty joints)
Master Cylinder cap seal leaks.
Both dealer repaired under warranty.
I needed something more reliable than my old Buick was.
My salesman (a good friend) saw me looking at GLS sedans, and because he had received a call from my sister and her husband, he knew that one car in the lot was perfect. Enter the 2007 3 door. It was one of only 3 in a 500 mile radius. And one of the first off the line, (pre-strike built).
It handles better than any car I have ever owned, with the 5 speed, goes 0-60 in about 9 seconds flat. (A little punchier now, with intake on it.)
The interior looks more like that of a car 3,000 dollars more, and the seats cup your body like some sports cars I have driven.
Excellent gas mileage, and the CVVT makes the car a smooth accelerator from 1500 rpm (after clutch release) all the way to rev limit at 6,750 rpm.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
