Great, reliable car for everyday use and vacations
Changed timing belt and water pump as part of preventive maintenance at 165,000. The water pump was a rebuilt from a 3rd party mechanic and it gave out at 220,000 - so changed both again. Starting to burn a little oil now.
Replaced the driver's outside door handle. The plastic handle broke off after 175,000 miles on the car.
Great reliable car - has always started even on the cold bitter days. Get 31 mpg overall - even though EPA rating is 29 mpg on the highway.
Acceleration is good - not going to be a 6 cylinder, but definitely has get-up and go. Doesn't mind cruising at high speeds either ;-)
The rear cup holders broke after normal use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
