ReviewGreat vehicle, but I'm starting to think it isn't built for the long haul. I recently had the dealership perform a transmission adjustment to eliminate an occasional "rumble strip" noise that would randomly occur in the 40-50 MPH range. They said they're getting about 4-5 of these problems per month! I've also noticed the mileage is getting worse. I was getting about 20mpg with combined city/highway. Now I'm down to about 17, which STINKS.
Best FeaturesGreat get up and go. Good handling and nice styling. The 6-disc CD player/stereo is outstanding.
Worst FeaturesPut the gear shifi on the floor! Find a way to eliminate the roar of the wind at highway speeds. Did the engineers not personally road test this thing?
