I've had this car for eight months, and every mile is a pleasure. I look for excuses to get into it.
However, in that time, the hissing/crackling radio was replaced (took three trips to dealer: diagnosis, amplifier, radio); the fuel door opener broke; and now the interior sunroof panel doesn't track straight and the gas gauge is wrong (ran out of gas with 1/8 tank indicated).

Sounds like a lot of problems, but they're all minor and none (except the hissing radio) detracted from the pleasure of driving, which is the main reason to have this car. I'm glad I bought it.

Best Features

Engine noise. One-touch windows. Automatic headlights. Heated seats. Exterior is beautiful but not ostentatious.

Worst Features

Better (non-drivetrain) build quality and/or better parts stocking at dealership. More color options. Better navigation system.
