Here is a list of all I had to replace, despite good maintenance and care:
Antennae motor (2006).
Rear muffler (2008).
Middle muffler (2009).
Intermediate pipe (2007).
A/C compressor (2007 and 2012).
A/C hose (2010).
Rear passenger window motor (2010).
Driver window hardware (2011).
Driver electric door lock (2012).
DIC cassette (2010).
Turbo sensor valve (2007 and 2009).
Front control arms, twice each side (from 2006 to 2011).
SID and CCU displays (have been dead for years, finally fixed in 2012).
Fuel gauge (2006).
Complete front suspension (2010).
Battery (2007 and 2011).
Power steering pressure hose (2008).
Complete engine (2010).
Lately, an ABS sensor died, getting almost every existing light on the dashboard to flash. Not replaced yet.
Transmission is giving signs of dying soon.
The car will not start randomly. Starter has to be replaced.
That's it! I am very stubborn, but the car finally had a total victory over me. After years of frustration, countless days off work to have the car serviced, numerous stalls on the roadside because of a recurrent faulty gas gauge, and thousands of dollars spent to keep a lemon running until the next major fault, I give up!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
