This car has had more issues than not. The steering has always made a griding noise when at low speeds, the air conditioner has been broken since the second day after we drove off of the lot, and the cab space is next to nothing. I do not feel safe driving this car. Personally, I do not like it, but for a first car that is only to be owned for a short period, it's ideal. It's cheap, and the price shows it. You'll drop the price of a new car to repair the a/c alone, though, so if comfort is your game you may want to steer clear of this model and year.
The only thing I like about this car was the sound system. The radio always worked, even when everything else was falling out.
-Air conditioning That's the -big problem- with this car. Nothing is worse than driving in a big city with temperatures in the upper 90's in bumper to bumper traffic, especially when your job requires you to look professional and not like you work construction.
