Review

I have the same experience as so many
others here... really love the brand,
love the car... HATE the constantly
breaking $200-$500 repairs on small
things. Since the beginning I have had
a rattle in the
stickshift/transmission, O2 sensors
replaced often, check engine light goes
on all the time, ignition switch
replaced, 2 door handles just stoped
working, 3 window regulators replaced,
clutch pedal broke off, tires are very
non-standard size (restricts your
choices and increases cost), ABS is
gone. The door handles and windows are
the most annoying... c'mon, those
should not break so often over only 70k
miles!! Really want to buy another,
just cant.

Best Features

roomy and peppy.

Worst Features

Dont skimp so much on the quality of small parts. dont make eveything so proprietary... focus on improving the computer system. Bring back the glove box. Just make it more reliable... you can do this!!!
