If the quality were backed up by the company, I might purchase another, but it isn't the case
The headlight bulbs have been replaced a couple of times.
The power steering hose was leaking, and had to be replaced. Aftermarket parts were available at one third the dealer pricing, but I needed the vehicle and could not wait to get the aftermarket parts. With the dealer parts this was approx. $400 repair at a local shop.
There has always been some engine compartment noise since I purchased the car from a used car dealer, and have now determined it to be transmission noise, like something is broken, yet the car shifts quite perfectly.
The button to open the gas cap no longer functions, so one has to open the trunk to pull the emergency release to fill the car's tank.
Good car overall for the cost/value ratio.
Does have some poorer quality parts that the company does not wish to recognize. These issues should be handled by some class action legal means, as it affects many of the same cars.
The engine is a bit too large at 3.5 liters; with the future looking to economy, a 3.0 L engine would be quite enough for this vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
