When we first bought the car (used), it needed two items that were both covered under a previous recall that the original owner never did - some sort of exhaust gasket and chip adjustment.
We have had to do several large items like an intake manifold and a motor mount, but in comparison, the parts have been reasonable.
The factory CD player pitched, but I bought an OEM swap out from e-bay for $40.00.
The battery cable mutated itself onto the battery post, and was well and truly corroded. The wiring loom was expensive to replace, but that is a once and done thing...
The rear tailight lenses held water for a while, but two small holes drilled to the base evacuates them perfectly... no more issues there...
Incredible gas mileage - on a long trip from Ohio to Maine, with kids, a trunk full of junk, and the AC blasting, we still managed over 34 mpg on 87 octane!
Our heated leather seats look brand new still, the cruise control is very exact, and the trunk is massive for a car its size.
The car has fantastic handling and cruises the highway exceptionally well. It is no drag racer for sure, but entrance ramps are no problem at all.
The sound quality of the stereo is mediocre, the gauges are nice and big, and the switches make sense.
The visibility out of the car is great, and the back seat can hold adults very comfortably.
