There's a lot of problems with the trunk not closing/opening.... besides that it's a great car

I like the looks, and the way it drives. I don't like the trunk because it keeps braking/not working right. The cost of repairs is not good either

- Mike F

Dependable, have had very few issues with it over the years.

Like the size and dependability. Dislike that the AC system is mediocre. Also, the car is a bit low to the ground and is not that easy to get in.

- Dale G

Built like a "Tank" ... Keeps you Safe. I bought my car used and to date never had to put any repairs into it other than regular maintenance.

It's a well built car. Was in several accidents (due to others) and it kept me safe. It's a little tank that performs well.
