The car has been trouble free as a daily driver. It is driven 35,000 miles a year, mostly highway.
Total dollars in maintenance for three years (102,000 miles) including brakes and one set of tires is about $1200.00. The car has never been returned for warranty work.
Seats become slightly uncomfortable after an hour. But the overall ride is smooth, even at 70 MPH.
The interior quality is good, with only a minor rattle from the glove box door lock that is annoying when traveling over rough pavement.
The exterior finish is excellent with the only detraction being the weld seems in the engine compartment rusting (as mentioned above).
Radio and CD player is adequate.
Engine power is sufficient and the transmisson is excellent. It shifts precisely and makes the most of the engine's power.
The car performs well during winter driving situatons.
The rear passenger compartment is roomy enough for two adults.
Heating and air conditioning is more than adequate.
