Great car in the rain/snow. Like the
two previous reviewers, I had to have
the alternator replaced when the car
was less than three years old. I was
reimbursed a year later after being
informed of the recall. But now I too
have the same strange non-functioning
dashboard light for my heater. Another
factory flaw? Also, takes a lot of
airconditioning to keep it cool in
summer, and the moment I turn the a/c
off, the interior heats up again fairly
quickly. Not thrilled with the gas
mileage. It is worse than listed,
though, oddly seems to have improved a
bit over the last two years.
Overall,though, pretty happy with the
car. The alternator has been the only
repair in almost 5 years.
AWD, definitely. Very roomy storage in
the back. Split backseat is great--
carseat on one side and we can put down
the other side of the back seat. this
was a key factor in our purchase.
