Great car, not excellent.
No major problems after 96k miles.
pluses are DECENT gas mileage. I get 27 combine with the 4cyl. very roomy, no mechnical failures.
Good solid, dependable car.
Minuses are the same as others (maybe my experiences arent quite as bad).
i just put my 3rd set of rear brakes on.
thats $260 worth. 2nd set of tires at 70k miles for $880 and a battery at 80k miles for $80.
other than that its has been normal oil changes.
I am slightly dissapointed with the paint, its not bad but i do a lot of highway driving and it doesnt hold up to the chips and bugs from the road.
Paint seems very thin. also the center console bubbled on the leather, same as others.
reliable (at least up to 96k)
rattles from the trunk (was fixed but reappears)
leather on center console
