Overall, this is a very good car. It's
come with it's share of problems,
though. #1-Bought the car spring time.
I didn't use the AC for any extended
period of time until mid summer. The
first time I really got to use it,
about an hour into the trip, i notice
that my foot was wet, and that the AC
drain hose was pinched in the AC box,
and had totally flooded my car via the
heater vents. The dealership fixed the
drain problem, but did nothing about my
rotting, falling apart carpet! #2-Trans
was grinding in fifth gear at 300
miles, dealer told me to "let it break
in". Went back next week, no more 5th
gear, and almost no reverse. 2 1/2
weeks later, and a new trans.
Very smootheeee ride, extremely quiet
inside. Interior is very comfortable,
and everything is where it should be!!!
Make a 4cyl with more HP and more
Torque, take some lessons from Nissan.
(2.5l, 180hp, 175ftlb, compared to
2.3l, 150 hp!!!)
