A great deal for the money
Trunk spring bars went bad at 5,000 miles, dealer replaced.
Front rotors and pads had to be replaced at 25,000 miles. The brake shop had enormous trouble getting the rotors off, resulting in damaging the bearings, which they replaced.
Overall a very good car with excellent standard features. The only option I have is the power sunroof.
The 135hp motor is very underpowered, especially with the automatic transmission. Plus, the engine has a very slight hesitation when accelerating, usually around 3,000 rpm.
The suspension is adequate and handles nicely.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
