I paid at $11,000 at 64,000 hwy miles from a pharmaceutical sales company in 1999. I spent $250 for a brake job inc warped rotors after 1st yr. My miles were lower than average but replaced brakes and tires often for the 1st 3 yrs. Overheating problems came and I spent quite a bit to get the system flushed & new coolant. The heater was not working reliably as coolant continued to leak out from the system recovery tank even after replacing pressure caps 2x . At 98,000 miles the Transmission gave out & it cost $4400. Door ajar light & check engine lights came on past yr. Heater stopped working., Leak in A/C system means no air. Now it wont pass smog & camshaft position sensor went out.
cruise control is nice, radio works great, electric windows still work. trunk access with fold down seats is great for long objects.
A/C brakes transmission safety sensors overheating issues need to be addressed. Quality must be a priority and not a slogan. Why are consumers no longer trusting made in USA? Produce quality products at better prices then come back and regain your customers.
