I just bought this bug with 24K miles on it. teh previous owner kept excellent care of it. I've had it a month and the window regulator needs replacement...$317.00. As I look through the records, she had some things fixed which weren't mentioned...sunglass case didn't close, windshield leaked, passenger mirror didn't work. The transmission (auto) takes 2-3 seconds to grab, which the dealership says is normal. Difficult to believe. Car is a lot of fun to drive, had a Civic before. BUT, not sure if it is built very well...my Honda went 150K with only one 'mechanical repair' besides maintenance. Next time, I'll buy a HONDA!
Fun to drive!!
Build quality is poor. I never know what will break next!
