Review

I should have believed Consumer
Reports! The reliability of this
vehicle is no better than a GM or Ford
according to CR. Problems since I have
owned it (37k to 42k miles): broken
power rear shade, broken engine heat
shield, broken cable for power drivers
seat (twice now), persistent engine
rattle, persistent interior rattles,
leaking rear differential seal, faulty
timing belt, broken lever to unlatch
fold down rear seats, loose drivers'
seat that needed new latches. All in
all a highly frustrating and unreliable
vehicle.

My recommendation: sell it before the
warranty expires, or better yet buy
something reliable like a Lexus, Acura
or Infiniti.

Best Features

Styling, strong engine, lots of nice gadgets, good highway high speed cruiser

Worst Features

Reliability: Mercedes Benz = M-B = Mechanical Burden
