I have had pretty good luck with this car. In the beginning, I had some problems with a faulty engine control computer module that was then replaced by the dealer under warranty and with the air conditioning system a couple of times during the last 7 years, but haven't had any significant problems since.
Great little car to run around town in. It is easy to drive and parking is a breeze. It is very economical to drive and maintain.
The manufacturer decided to save a buck by not installing a passenger door switch to turn on the dome light when that door is opened. That is really my only pet pieve.
