One smooth machine
Throttle sensor needed replaced because my friend and I thought that the idle could be adjusted like a carburetor... because the fuel injector manifold happens to look quite like a caburetor. brakes failed about six months into the car, but that was because I was being a jackass and taking out trash cans, and one got under my wheel and sliced the line. Coolant hoses needed replaced... they were still the stock hoses when I got it! It needed a new battery off the bat, because the one in there couldn't hold a charge worth a damn, water pump needed to be replaced after about five months.
This car had the potential to become a speed yacht, if I would have had any money to trick it out. The power steering leaked a little bit, but the steering was so smooth, I could drive it with one finger. And the ladies liked how comfortable it was. This car just handled like a dream, and was fun to take on long distance trips, I went to Cleveland to see Modest Mouse live, (i live in Livonia, MI) and the AC in the car chilled me and my friends to the bone even though it was 90-something outside. good times, let me tell ya.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
