Mine is a 4 cyl/ automatic transmission.
Had to replace the brake system power
booster 2 wks after purchase (almost
rear ended another vehicle). Now the car
has developed a chugging noise in the
front end and nobody is able to
troubleshoot it. Sheet metal is paper
thin, paint chips very easily. The
engine has enough power, but you really
have to punch the gas. LOTS of tire and
wind noise and whinny transmission.
Overall, a slightly less than average
ownership experience and definitely not
what I expected from a manufacturer with
such reputation for quality and reliability.
tight turning circle
agile for a medium sized car
decent mileage with 87 octane gas
Not as reliable as they say.
Craftmanship is ok, but car is just too
fragile to sustain initial quality level
