Not a head-turner, but reliable and fun
I've had to replace various parts, but virtually all of it has been basic wear and tear.
My roof leaks a bit from the sunroof.
I have maintained this car as well as possible -- servicing it every 3,000 miles. At 94,000 miles, I switched to synthetic oil, and I recently got 39 mpg highway.
Aside from basic wear & tear such as serpentine belt replacement, I haven't had any servicing issues. I have been thoroughly pleased with the performance and value from this car. I paid it off years ago, so driving it has been an incredible bargain.
Since I'm short, 5' 2", I appreciate that there's not a bad blind spot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
