Like the title says, I absolutely love the car, but there have just been too
many reliability issues. It fits my needs perfectly -- it's sporty, practical, and
luxurious all at once. In the GLX level, it feels like an Audi hatchback would
feel if they sold one in the U.S. But in the two years I have owned it, I have
had to have the driver's side airbag replaced, the airbag wiring harness
replaced, the driver's side door realigned twice, a speaker replaced twice, the
driver's side window regulator replaced twice, and the engine mass air flow
The engine! Lots of torque, and smooth. Only BMW makes a nicer
six-cylinder engine. The interior feels like it belongs in an Audi.
BUILD QUALITY! Shifter is a little notchy, handling is a little soft. The rear
seats are a major pain in the rear to fold down.
