It has been a pretty reliable car... no complaints, really
Blew head gasket and cracked the head around 95,000 miles.
Had to replace ALL the censors about 2 months later... almost costing more for these two repairs than purchasing the car! Also informed of radiator problems at this time and opted for a new rather than refurbished one.
Replaced fuel pump about 140,000 miles.
Began having an oil leak and discovered the check spout had became loosened from the motor. Because everything had became so saturated with oil, I had to replace the alternator..
Transmission is good, although leaks fluid occasionally and have to tighten the bolts in the pan. This is probably also do in part to the many country roads I travel.
I like the car and hate to part with it, although I know one day soon I probably will. It handles really well and have never really had any problems with it. Oh, the above ones, but I figure a car is a car and when you buy used, you generally are buying someone else's problems. But, hey, you live and learn. Overall, I cannot really complain as I paid a fair price for the car and it has taken me many, many miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
