This model is a piece of crap!
Instrument cluster failed and left us stranded on the road.
Transmission failure left us with one gear.
Ignition switch failed and left us stranded again.
Forget buying this car.
It is underpowered (we do live in the mountains though).
We experienced an "instrument cluster" failure at approximately 65,000 which left us stranded on the road. After a dealer charged $650.00 to fix it, he mentioned that this was a relatively common problem.
At about 70,000 the transmission became erratic and wouldn't shift above 1st gear. This repair cost $2450.00.
One week later, we were stranded again when the ignition switch failed. This cost $216.00 to fix.
The dealer who fixed this told us the car is worth $2000 now.
The dealers we have dealt with and the car itself have sucked!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
