I bought this car used in Jan. 08 with about 15k miles. I had to have the back left window motor replaced and just had front right axle and bearing replaced. It was all under warranty so no cost. Everything else has been great. The audio system is awesome with SYNC, though the high end is a little tinny and the phone calls are hard for the other person to hear when using bluetooth. The acceleration is great for the engine size. It does not handle as well as my 2000 VW Golf did, but it isn't bad. As everyone says, the mpg is terrific. It isn't that exciting but it drives well and seems to be reliable since I got those things done.
Has a timing chain and good access to oil drain and filter and spark plugs. SYNC system
Handles over doors and rear interior lights please!!! ABS standard.
