Reliable, beautiful, and more comfortable than the couch in my living room!
The heater didn't work for me last winter. Luckily in the region it was a mild, warm winter. We found out that it was a vacuum somewhere that was broken, as the heater core and the rest of the car worked fine, and the fans were blowing.
EGR valve is faulty at 180,000 kms, but the part is cheap online, and if you can do it yourself, it's a cheap fix.
The clear coat on the roof and trunk is coming off in patchy spots, due to prolonged sun exposure.
This is my dad's car, and he has lent it to me for 1.5 years, and it has been absolutely my favourite car that I've ever driven. The clear coat spots have gotten worse since I've had it, and when I give it back to him, I want to repaint it as a thank you.
The seats in this car are more comfortable than the couch in my living room! The interior is still in perfect shape.
No rust, and this thing is 17 years old and has been winter driven for at least 3 years.
It's big, but since the engine is powerful, gas mileage is not as awful as you might expect, though it does cost $80 to fill the tank. A full tank lasts me about a week, and I drive a half hour to and from school, 3 days a week + regular driving to work, friends, etc.
Overall, I love this car and I never want to stop driving it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
