Amazingly reliable and long-lived
Only routine maintenance required.
CV joints needed frequent replacement when I first got the car, but not again after that.
Averages about $600/year in maintenance, tires and repair.
I can't believe this engine. It won't die! It still passes emissions testing too. And only 460,000 km young.
Had to replace a ball joint, clutch cable, and master cylinder in the past year. Now up to $800 / year in repair and looking at a transmission replacement. Guess it's finally time to get a new car.
All parts have lasted far longer than most other vehicles. I just can't believe it. It makes it hard to appreciate other vehicles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
