I Bought for Reliability
Cruise control disabled, along with key-less entry system at around 70K miles. I thought it was electrical... dealer doesn't know why -- I haven't fixed yet.
The factory BOSE CD Player failed after only three years. I'm glad I replaced it with a Sony 10-disk CD Player in the trunk for $300.
Water pump rotor cracked while driving at 100K miles. Replaced with timing chain for about $800.
Auto transmission starting to "slip" now (won't engage overdrive between 45 - 55 mph unless downhill) ; may need to replace electric solenoid - anyone have estimate?
Comfortable, fast, and reliable.
Relatively low cost to maintain.
Leaving the reading lights on, won't drain the battery.
Got the rear windows tinted for $250.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
