Bought this car almost 5 years ago,
with almost 68K miles, and have not had
any problems with this vehicle of any
sort, just basic maintenance. It takes
me where I need to get to, be it a
local drive or a longer trip of a few
A good car for the money paid and for a
single girl with no knowledge of the
mechanical/ car-related issues.
Drives well. I love the interior
mirrors with the lighting.
It's a V6, so gas mileage as not the
same as with the 4 cylinder. Outside
of that the beverage holder broke due
to fragile design. Outside of that I
have enjoyed this car a lot. A good

Car at the dealer for repairs six times
in the first two years I owned it: EGR
valves (?), catalytic converter, oxygen
sensors, electrical system issues, and
other stuff I have forgotten. Last 5
years: electrical system shorted out
twice; check engine light on all the
time; right rear suspension link broke,
speedometer/odometer stopped working.
All that being said I LOVE this car.
The engine is powerful and fuel-
efficient, the car is loaded with
options and a joy to drive. Handling
(before suspension problem) was
incredible - like a European
Engine, transmission, seats, moonroof.
Reliability, reliability, reliability,
and the stereo.
This was my first car and I'm still
driving it. Have had to deel with a
few recalls on gas tank, seat belt
bracket etc. Other issues included
front wheel bearing, shock springs, air
bag sensor and key lock. Most were
under warranty, some were not.
Dealership experience has been mixed.
Some are good, others were horrible. I
think I would probably avoid getting a
first year launch car if I were to do
it over again.
Fun to drive.
Nagging little problems that keep
coming up. Air vents for AC are
cracking due to cheap plastic. Little
to no leg room in the back.
