Other than the crazy cup holders and the awkwardl lighter location, purchasing this vehicle is one of the best decisions I've made in a long time!
It runs very well, but I have a leak in the trunk and a flooding throughout my car. The rear window broke out due to the top shrinking.
The car runs great,but having a leak on the passenger side and in the trunk.
Interior parts become loose over time,brakes are sluggish, engine needs more power, we have done many things to fix this car over a 10 yr time span. Lots of money for the fixes !!
