Great all around family car!
At about 85k the belt tensioner went bad, a 360 dollar part, but covered under warranty. Other than that, nothing has gone wrong.
This car was bought new by my father in 2004. He drove the car for about 40k and then lent it to my sister to drive while studying at UK. My sister beat the crap out of the car until I bought it Feb. of this year. I continued to do the same, and this car has never let me down, ever. I do however advise against treating this car like crap, as they tend to really deteriorate quickly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
