I've had almost no problems with my Amigo. But I'm not hard on stuff, and I keep up on maintenance. It was between the Amigo and a Wrangler. Amigo won for 3 people in the back seat, and useful cargo area. The CD changer was intermittently problematic, but with the advent of iPods, ultimately unnecessary. In cold weather, the alarm system sometimes malfunctions. I disabled the audible alert. The only serious problem with that was when it was malfunctioning in an airport parking lot, and I came home to a dead battery. (Next time I pull the battery cables.) Have thoroughly enjoyed the car.
Excellent in the snow, fun in the sun. Perfect size. Decent mileage. Looks cool. Unique.
The upholstery is ugly, and the part that would fix my alarm is ridiculously expensive. It's hard to get in the back seat. One of those "mini-doors" would have remedied that.
