Bought the car brand new and have over 105K miles on it. I did have the transmission replaced once (2007/98K miles), but it was under warranty and 3 years later still no issues. It's a great car, fun to drive and a great value to feature ratio. Very reliable and cost of ownership has been low for me. Overall the car has been a pleasure to own, which is good, since I plan on keeping it another 8 years.
