Good first year. The car has not aged
well since. Sliding doors freeze shut
in the winter and electric motors burn
out (both sides). Driver's side
sliding door rattles, dealer can/will
not fix. Passenger sliding door needs
a push when cold. Transmission shifts
roughly when cold (high RPMs too),
told this was a "feature" by the
dealer (yeah, right). OEM tires very
noisy. Door speakers rattle, work
intermittantly. Brakes grind stopping
from low speeds.
Good concept, rotten execution.
Deep well in back. Rear climate
control with front seat override.
Auto locking the sliding door when
opening the gas hatch was a nice
idea. Quiet engine.
Could use hooks for plastic grocery
bags (ala Chrysler) in the rear well.
Do something about the sliding doors.
Needs heating capacity to defrost
