This is the best car I've ever owned


The plastic water jacket failed at 225,00 miles.

The headliner started separating from the ceiling at 210,000 miles.

General Comments:

The car continues to ride well at 256,000 miles with no service to suspension components.

Extremely reliable. No other work than that previously listed and standard maintenance, (tires, brakes, oil changes).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
