It's a wonderful car that was built with care and I'd love to have it back
Nothing. We had to replace the brakes at the normal time, and tires periodically (but at normal times only).
We owned the car for 8 years, then sold it to my father-in-law, who is still driving it. It has gone back and forth from Ottawa to Halifax about 20 times, to Toronto and back a dozen times, and gave us no problems at any time. It had 280,000 km on it when we sold it, and currently has nearly 400,000 km, and still runs great.
The car was broad-sided at an intersection, hit from behind while parked twice, hit another car that was parked, hit an open man-hole, and hit a bear (yes, a live black bear, that was running across the road in the middle of the night) at 110 km/hr - and the car kept going after EVERY ONE of these.
It had enough power to get it out into traffic with no problem. It was fun to drive. It was good on gas. I told my father-in-law that, when he's done with it, I want it back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
