I just wish the darn wheel bearings weren't such a problem!
Replaced Motor in rear window wiper at purchase.
Replaced left Front Axle at 83003 km.
Replaced right rear Wheel Bearing at 83003 km.
Complete Brake replacement at 86751 km.
Replaced left and right rear Wheel Bearings at 93305 km.
New Timing Belt required.
Need another inspection of rear Wheel Bearings and Plugs and Wires need replacement.
According to the previous owner (she bought it brand new), the only problems she encountered were the distributor cap (it was replaced), radio not working, and rear defrost not working.
From my experience, I have concluded that once this model hits 75,000 km it is in need of constant servicing. Hopefully, it may only be the servicing I am receiving and not the car itself. Having to replace the wheel bearings 3 times within a year is outrageous!
Otherwise, it handles great and it wonderful on gas. :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
