Somewhat disappointed in longevity of transmission
The car ran remarkably well for 106,000 miles. At that point the manual transmission failed. I was shocked at the $2,100 price tag for the component. This was the first manual transmission failure of any car that I have owned. While somewhat disappointed, I have not observed wide spread incidents such as ours. Maybe we had a bad bearing. Based upon my experience, the front wheel drive Subaru Impreza (somewhat comparable) was far superior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
