Reliable, comfortable, handsome
Knock on wood, we haven't had anything break since we purchased the vehicle.
This is a great handling car for it's size.
Very comfortable with a smooth ride.
The heat sucks, it takes forever to heat the car and gets cold quickly while driving (not a trivial point here in Alaska).
The 6 cylinder engine provides smooth acceleration and decent fuel economy (24mpg+ highway/15-20city)
The controls inside are well placed and easy to work.
We purchased this car because our last car, a 1992 Jetta, was a cramped tin can with all manner of electrical problems.
I would buy this car again in a heartbeat.
Dealer repairs for foreign cars are obviously not cheap, but then again, we aren't driving a Taurus so it all works out in the end.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
