Nice design but poor reliability

ReviewI really enjoy driving this car, but the reliability has been very poor. This year/model apparently has a very poor brake design. The car's brakes had to be replaced 4 times in 64000 miles (including new rotors on 3 occasions). Other reviews describe the brake problems in more detiail. Have also had numerous problems with the engine including a bad head- gasket, thermostat, and other random issues. Have also had problems with the AC switch, the blinkers, and the windshield wipers. Despite the comfort of the car the reliability makes this car a real bummer.
Best FeaturesGood acceleration, comfortable seats, moonroof
Worst FeaturesMust improve the reliability on everything from the engine to the various switches in the car. Absolutely must fix the braking system (which I think they have probably addressed on later models).
