Tough to tell
I had to have new tires put on twice. I have little rattles all over the place. Belts have been tightened twice. In the winter I get maybe 12 miles per gallon if I'm lucky. And that's not even driving in 4 wheel drive. I had to replace the entire exhaust at 60000 miles, and it is showing signs of wear again.
Overall, it is a good car. I drive a lot of miles so some of the problems are to be expected. For a four wheel drive car though, I do not feel safe on wet or snowy roads. The back end tends to slide around a bit. I felt a lot safer in my Integra in bad weather. Even with the noise and miles, the engine is still powerful enough to get moving. The seats can be a little tough on the lower back on long trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
