I love the car and all my friends do too - I recommend it and will probably buy another next time!
The day after I got the car the passenger front window would not roll up. The used car dealer fixed it for me at no cost.
The Bose stereo pops from time to time - I have not taken it in to have it looked at.
The car drives beautifully on dry pavement. Excellent handling, quick, responsive, feels like a sports car with lots of pick-up when needed. However, on a recent rainy day (it had been dry for a long time so the streets were very slick) I fish-tailed going around a corner at a normal speed. It was not easy to bring it under control. I have top-of-the-line new tires on all four wheels, but the back-end is very light. I will be adding two fifty-pound bags to the trunk and will keep them there year around and imagine that will take care of the problem.
The price for a used car of this quality is tremendous. It is definitely a lot of value for the money. I paid $7,500 for the car - in excellent shape with all scheduled maintenance done.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
