Rear struts had to be replaced at 120,000 miles.
CV boots eventually tore, and had to be replaced at around 150,000 miles for the right side, and 189,000 for the left side.
Factory installed car alarm. At about 130,000 miles it started to go berserk when others hit their key fobs. So I solved that by cutting the wire to the alarm sound maker. Lights still flash.
Except for old age problems on things like struts and CV boots, this car has had zero problems! I always get the oil, transmission fluid and brake fluid changed when I'm supposed to. Spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, that kind of stuff. It has cost me almost nothing to maintain this car!
I have had no transmission problems or head gasket problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
