The reliability and issues with these cars have a lot to do with how you drive them. They are a sport sedan and most are driven as such. If you drive a car hard things are going to wear out and break. If you own one of these, things are probably going to break and need fixing. That being said I love this car and it is very fun to drive. Would I own one of these if it was the only car in the family, or if you absolutely can not go with out a car for a couple days, maybe not. It will probably be in the shop at some point, but most shops have a loaner cars. If you are a car person and like working on your own car, or want a car you can add some after market parts too. This is a great car to look into.
