Was continually taking it into the shop for repairs. There were 37 repairs in 7 years and this is not counting servicing, which were all done on time. Multiple attempts to fix the nav system (7 months); multiple attempts to fix handling problems on two separate occasions (23 months total); had to replace molding between doors 11 times; had to replace all four window drive units at separate times; had to replace heater system; had to replace one motor mount; had to replace windshield washer pump assembly; had to replace door latching system in passenger door and driver's door is going out also; had to replace all the brakes at 19,000 miles; and had to replace positive battery cable.
I like the acceleration, the looks of the car, the feel of the car and the way you mold into the driver's seat. I like the attention it gets when it's not in the shop for repairs.
They need to improve on quality and reliability. You spend too much for a car that has to spend so much time in the repair shop.
