A fabulous, comfortable workhorse
Faulty Break Line caused brakes to fail within the first year.
Very minimal routine maintenance and the car runs like a champ.
I love this car, the interior has held up remarkably well considering that I use the car to camp, backpack, transport children, wet paintings and all the ordinary stuff of life. It has been amazingly inexpensive to maintain and gets great gas mileage. In it's old age it has developed a fondness for oil, so I keep it topped off. As a brand new teacher (translation-impoverished) I am trying to stretch it out another year. I hope to get a VUE hybrid.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
