We were surprised at how many times we've taken our car into the shop. The fuel sensor in the gas tank has been replaced five times now. The turn signal has been replaced 3 times. The gas mileage is terrible on this car - we're lucky to get 18 mpg. But I think the biggest issue I have with this car is that the front corner posts are placed in such a way as to be viewing obstacles when driving. They create blind spots for pedestrians. This is a definite design flaw, in my opinion. The front seats aren't comfortable and have no lumbar support. The car is also very low to the ground- it was fine 13 years ago when I bought it but now I'm over 60 and find it aggravatingly low.
