Fantastic vehicle, fun to drive!
Check Engine light comes on when it's extremely hot outside. The light will go off when heat subsides. This happened only 2 times when the temperature was over 102 degrees.
Broken trunk lifts. I have children using the trunk regularly and life in extreme temperatures ranging from -30 to 112 degrees. Cold weather makes plastic brittle, thus, the trunk lifts were broken when one of my children slammed the trunk shut.
Car went into 'limp mode' yesterday. This was the first time. It was -44 with wind chill. I drove the car home (10 miles) and parked it in the garage. This morning it started and runs like a new car again. Nothing works well in -44 degree weather.
Fabulous take off and handling. Great control, sporty. This has been a great car. I've owned it for four years and love it. I have had no problems. With regular maintenance such as oil changes, this car is fantastic. I love it!
Vehicle has been extremely sound running and reliable, it always starts, even in the winter. I didn't add a block heater, but do garage it.
Accidents can be extremely costly. I hit a pheasant on the road, it cost my insurance company nearly $3,000. My agent said most car deer accidents don't reach that mark.
Easy, smooth shifting.
Small bucket seats, larger people riding with me are sometimes uncomfortable and have difficulty buckling their seat belts. Average size or tall people are very comfortable. Seats are form fitting and have great support.
Back seat is roomy for children and average for adults. Taller people really require sitting in front.
Good size trunk. Basically the same as any other mid-size model on the market. Back seats fold down for larger or long items.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
