Haven't had any mechanical problems. The only things I've replaced so far besides the wiper blades are the front brakes and the tires. Those were both done after 40,000. It takes off pretty good and sounds great. Of course great gas mileage which is a plus when gas prices rise. Overall, I'd buy it again.
Does U-turns easily. CD Player standard. Great speakers.
Teens say cool car.
The head rest is too far back for me but I'm only 5'3 so that might not matter to a tall person.Wish I'd had the CD/Tape put in for verstility.
