Nothing but problems

Everything from not wanting to start on days at 50 degrees to starter problems. Cd player crapped out, brake sensors, air bag sensors, you name it. My girlfriend's is currently sitting in the driveway with a failed starter. I guess the way you have to crank these cars to get them started really takes it toll on the part. When it drives, it's great, but it just has way too many problems. Not worth the aggravation, in my humble opinion.
It handles great and has a nice amount of torque.
More durable parts that experience daily wear and tear. Fix the mild weather starting issues.
