Very reliable and quick
CD player failed at 100,000.
Rotors replaced at 100,000.
Both cam shaft sensors replaced within 3 months of each other.
Spark plug tube filled with oil.
This car is fast off the line and has a sweet exhaust tone. It reaches 80 miles an hour very, very quickly.
The A/C works very well. It brings the temperature down quickly on hot summer days.
The windows are slightly tinted from the factory, and do an excellent job blocking UV rays.
The rear seats recline, which is a nice touch. The rear seats can hold three adults with a squeeze, or three kids comfortably, or two adults comfortably.
I changed the OEM brake rotors and pads to R1 Concepts Drilled rotors and ceramic brake pad package, and I no longer have brake issues with the pads wearing away quickly.
It is a bit heavy on gas and runs better on premium. It tends to burn oil if you switch to 100% synthetic. Switch to synthetic blend and that problem goes away.
All in all, this car won't leave you stranded.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
