Big bang for the buck
Check engine light came up 3 times. Mass air flow sensor replaced twice. Had difficulty starting after gas fill-up, until sensor was replaced. No problem since.
Had to replace faulty cup holder. Have noticed door flap no longer closes properly.
Right-side hinge has broken on glove box.
Extremely smooth V6 engine
One of the best looking compact sedans on the market.
I recommend the leather option and Monsoon Sound package.
I opted for the fully loaded VR6 over the higher priced BMW 3 series because it's quite similar, but a lot cheaper.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
