This car has been extremely reliable. I have never been stranded. Engine is fantastic even after 150k miles. I am glad I did some research on Edmunds. My only problems were a bad oxygen sensor, a bad knock sensor, and the fan switch only works on high. I still drive with these problems but hope to fix them soon even though they are minor. This car is the best bang for your buck!
Huge trunk, 5 spd, V6 engine, roomy interior, reliability, comfortable seats, great looks for a car that is almost 10 years old, spoiler, and handling.
Exhaust is a little shaky, but it's been over lots of bumpy roads. Oxygen sensors should last longer. That's about it.
