Reliability, comfort, easiness to work on, all for less than $3000
Virtually nothing mechanical, the transmission switch went out and had to be rebuilt.
I had to push the gearshift towards the engine in order to start the car.
The speakers went out, all at different times, and had to replace them all (cheap and easy to do yourself).
As far as that goes, it does burn a little oil, but this is normal from what my mechanic told me.
I loved this car as I drove it. My dad gave it to me to use for school, and I loved how it handled; these cars have really good handling and they are very fun to drive; they don't look fast but they really are!
The gas mileage isn't great, but it isn't terrible; I got around 17-18mpg city, and I would definitely buy one of these cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
