Great little car, very reliable
Not much has gone wrong. The paint was fading when I got it, and a little rust on the wheel wells.
Mechanically it's been great. Other than the usual maintenance, I've only had to change the thermostat because it was stuck open. Had to take it to a garage for that, because they had to put it on a lift to replace it.
I've only had it for a year and a half, but it's been extremely reliable. I have an hour plus drive to work each way, so I was a little concerned how a little 4 cylinder would hold up, but it's been solid.
The car looks sporty, but it's really more of an economy car, because it's not real fast, but I'm getting 35 mpg consistently, which is a good thing, because the tank only holds 11 gallons.
The only problem I have with the car, is I have 2 kids in car seats, and it's kind of a pain to get them in & out, but it's a small price to pay for reliability and great gas mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
