I bought my 6i automatic on 6/1/06 with 9 miles. I've had only small issues with it, now have 58,000 miles on the vehicle. I've done a lot of modifications to the suspension and some to the engine, and I drive the car pretty hard. Never a problem thus far. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. The handling of the car is great, it has adequate interior room, OK fuel economy, and reasonable maintenance costs.
I like the steering wheel radio controls, the handling, the car heats up pretty quickly in winter, good snow traction, features for the price.
I would like a tighter turning circle for city driving/parking, maybe a little more interior room. Otherwise the car is pretty nice for the money.
