DO NOT BUY THIS CAR

ReviewHad nothing but problems with this car since day 1. Back rotor brakes have been resurfaced 4 times (only 28K miles on car) and already need to be done again. There are random electrical problems (blinkers will randomly quit working while driving but turn the hazard lights on few seconds they will work again/radio will not turn off after car is off, keys out and doors open and will stay on constantly until suddenly going off as it should) that they can't seem to find an explanation for so can't fix. I bought this car because it claimed to be low maintenance but has been anything but. It has been in for repairs at least 6 times a year.
Best FeaturesThe fact that the radio stays on after the car is turned off for 10 minutes or until the drivers door is opened (when it works). Also when you push the lock button on door and it gives you 15 seconds after the last door is closed before it locks then honks to let you know it is locked.
Worst FeaturesNeeds to be much, much, much, much, much more reliable than it is. Also should have been easier to find a stick. Better cup holder locations in front (the one on the consol is really bad with the stick as your arm constantly hits it).
