Buy something else than this POS
At 70,000 miles, the automatic transmission totally failed costing $2000 for replacement.
At 50,000 miles, the airbag light stayed constantly on.
Replaced three bent stock wheels thanks to hitting potholes (due to the extremely harsh suspension.)
Several plastic trim pieces have fallen off, like the covers for the sunroof vents, seat adjustment handles, etc.
Foul smell in A/C system three months after purchase.
Power sunroof has trouble sealing fully, which is solved by pushing a metal strip downward while closing.
The car is fairly nice looking in great condition, kinda like an older BMW, but far from it in terms of quality, comfort, and performance.
For the price, the car has a lot of standard features, which makes it appealing to new buyers.
Resell value is totally horrible so buyers beware...
For being a 4-door sedan, this car has a very harsh suspension (but thank goodness the seats ave very comfy of this would be very uncomfortable.)
The engine sounds very powerful (on paper, hehehehe.) but is very average on acceleration and isn't the most fuel thrifty vehicle either for a 4-cylinder engine-- about 23 MPG around city, but about 30 MPG on highway cruising.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
