Summary:

Was a good car when newly bought

Faults:

- Front linkage for the sway bar broke.

- Leak in the gas tank.

- Seats/interior is faded a lot.

- Paint is chipped all over car. Maybe due to a hail storm.

General Comments:

- The car is very hard to do any work on due to all the vacuum/wire hoses.

- There is too much of the car controlled by computers (too much to go wrong and replace).

- Driving in the car is really nice. She seems to float on the road.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
