In the beginning, I replaced the brake pads frequently.
Recently had to make repairs to the catalytic converter.
No other major repairs.
I have gotten every penny I paid for this car. While it is not the most glamorous car and it has had problems, it has held up reasonably well over the years and the miles.
Had very few problems until car really began to show its age. Then, sunroof quit working... well, it would open but not close. Then, the passenger side window quit closing too. I chose not to repair them and simply live with it.
Car still gets 38-40 mpg so I keep driving it. Hard to find a comparable car with that kind of mileage today.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
