After buying the car at first we were happy with it. About 2 weeks after buying the car we started having problems with the transmission. We took it back to the dealer and they replaced the whole clutch system. Then after we picked it up out of the shop about 1 week later we found that it was very hard to start the car because you have to press the clutch down all the way to the floor to start the car. After driving the car for about another week it was hard to start out in first gear and when you shirt from 1st to 2nd gear it is fine.and so on. So far it has been very disapointing because the problem is still not fixed. Other than that the car is great it could use a few more horses under the hood cause i think it lacks in that area but i guess i have to remember its not a 68 firebird with a 400 bigblock LOL.
If I had it to do again, I'd buy another one. This car is great! I'm averaging 32 mpg, mixed highway and city, with an automatic! Plenty of room, even for my 6'5" son, and plenty of cargo space. Only downfall would perhaps be the acceleration, it doesn't have a lot of pep.
I almost didn't buy this vehicle due to it being bright red, but im very glad I did. It gets great mileage, very roomy, both rear seats fold down to move large objects. The backs of the rear seats and back deck have a rail system built in to secure whatever you are hauling. If you want comfort, economy and performance, this is the vehicle for you.
