I got one of the bad ones. I bought it new and it's been nothing but problems. Numerous brake issues, driver window motor broke, steering column locked, seat heaters quit working, something is broken inside the dash so heat only comes out of the driver side of the car (cold air out the passenger side), oil pressure gauge malfunctions, check engine light periodically comes on for no reason and I just finished spending $500 for a new heater fan motor, heater module and wiring. On the next breakdown I'm planning on parking it somewhere with the keys in it and the engine running, but I suspect that whoever steals it would bring it back after they realized what a piece of junk they had.
Nice looking car; rides well; actually fun to drive when it works. Good in snow.
A complete and total mechanical nightmare. At 55,000 miles, these things should not be happening.
