I dont care if its Yugo or Lexus, NEVER
buy a first generation vehicle (like I
did). The engineers need time to
improve the thing with a few design
mods. I have had my car for 9 years
and put 135,000 miles on it. Fun as
hell to drive, but frequent warranty
failures put me on first name basis
with service department. Out of
Warranty repairs minor, but agree the
powertrain is a total pain to work on -
even a simple thing takes patience due
to extremely dense fit of motor in
Handling, and awesome sound/power of
the V-6 at 6700 rpm redline. I still
look forward to driving it after 9
years as I did the first day I bought
it. Fun as hell to drive, folks.
Tell the GAS TANK ENGINEERING TEAM to
get their act together and design a
system that allows one to actually get
a full tank of gas without cussing!
