I have read these reviews and I have to wonder if the people that have had alignment problems are just hitting too many potholes.
I have over 70k on my car and have only had one alignment and I know it was due to the terrain.
Nothing flimsy about this car. It's been an excellent car, I drive a lot and I highly recommend it.
It's held up extremely well, no mechanical problems at all. I think it's all in how you drive.
