Overall, it is a good quality car for the money it cost
When I got the car, the rotors were warped, $75.
At 150,000 miles I had to replace the brake rotors, brake pads, brake calipers, wheel bearings and brake hoses, $270.
I had a vacuum line break when I bought it, car ran poorly, $15.
Oxygen sensor was bad when I bought the car, $80.
Camshaft sensor was bad when I bought the car, $50.
At 130,000 miles, Coolant Level Sensor went bad, $15.
At 151,000, replaced 4 tires, $350.
Total cost on parts in 37,000 miles was $855, which is pretty good for that type of mileage.
Carpet wore badly on drivers side.
The car still gets great gas mileage for 154,000. 24/29.
Car handles very well in corners.
Accelerates strong and shifts strong into second.
Seats are uncomfortable.
Trunk is almost completely useless, very small and tight opening when trunk lid is open.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
