A bargain, economical, but not luxurious. Problems are more irritating than serious
This car is very economical, but it does tend to use a lot of oil.
I had to have the alternator replaced twice.
The car only has 32,000 miles on it and I have had it for a little over four years.
The plastic clutch melted and now my air conditioner won't work - it is the start of summer in Houston.
I had trouble with the window sealant on the passenger side, it allowed rain water to come through and had to be replaced the same year I got the car. From time to time there are mysterious leaks after a big rain, yet the dealership claims to have fixed the problem.
I was in an accident and the car was hardly damaged even though it was hit head on from the passenger's side.
Earlier a screw came unbolted from the side of the door and had to be re-adjusted (minor), but strange.
The car is modestly comfortable, but it is a little too low to the ground for comfort.
It is my first brand new car and I like it, but if I had more experience with vehicles at the time I probably wouldn't have purchased it.
One other thing the car hydroplanes all the time, even with the slightest of wet weather conditions.
I have yet to run into any real major problems with this car, but as I read the list of other people's comments on it's faults I notice the ones I am dealing with appear right on schedule with their complaints.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
