I have owned this car for 9 years and did not have ANY problems with it until it was 12 years old.
The car has been extremely reliable and I would recommend it to anyone without hesitation.
The only things that has gone wrong with this car during the 9 years that I have owned it was a power steering leak, a problem with the air conditioning and 2 broken rear seat belts.
The car drives like it did when new even though it is now 13 years old.
