I have experienced No part failures on this car what so ever. Wearable parts and routine maintenance has been performed regularly and I consistently perform 3,000 mile oil changes using Full synthetic motor oil. I have changed spark plugs, spark plug wires, PVC valve, EGR valve, brake pads, tires, and air filters.
Excellent Fuel Efficiency (average 39 mpg)
Reliable and dependable car when properly maintained.
Smooth transmission and engine.
Body panels maintain their finish and shine well without the need for excessive washing and waxing.
Seats are uncomfortable when driving long distances.
Engine is somewhat underpowered. I would opt for the manual transmission for this reason.
Simply the best economy car I know of.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
