I bought this car in Aug. 2005. It has been a very good car. It now has 66000 miles on it. I have replaced the water pump though. Also the car was pulling when I push the gas and go around corners; I researched it and found that the bushings behind the front tires needed to be replaced. Overall this car has been great; the re-sale value is horrible though because of the company going out of business. The car has proven to be reliable, gas mileage around 24-26 mpg. It has very good power and pick up compared to most 4 cylinders I have driven. I would recommend it to anyone

Bought new, and it's been good to us. We had a few minor issues: the timing belt snapped at 40k and thank goodness it was still under warranty. Other than that, only minor interior gripes: Overhead hand grip screw covers fell off, and the backlight went out on the environmental controls. Tires from stock were not the best. We are starting to develop a little corrosion on the aluminum roof rack, but after 6 years - not unexpected.

Bought this car new. After warranty
expired, had nothing but problems.
What went wrong early on: CD player,
air conditioning, ABS, heater cores
(had to be replaced twice!),
windshield wipers, alarm, head gasket.
Struts seemed to wear out quickly.
That's what I can remember off the top
of my head, apart from normal
maintenance! Spent thousands keeping
this piece of rubbish on the road.
That is, when we were able to get the
parts. Because it sometimes took days
for parts to arrive, we would have the
added expense of renting a car. In a
way, it didn't do too badly..finally
retired it 4 days ago after 154,000
miles (bought new Honda Civic - love
it so far!). DO NOT BUY THIS
In an attempt to lure consumers away from the likes of Honda and Toyota, the new Korean upstart fields its loaded-with-features Nubira. Air conditioner, power windows, keyless entry, four-wheel disc brakes, 129 horsepower and a funny name all come as standard equipment.
