I've owned this vehicle for 4 years and 70,000km and have yet to need a major repair or have the "car down". I've pretty much only have had to put maintenance into the vehicle and have been treated to nothing but more and more fun.
performance is above average with fantastic low end torque that pulls you back in your seat. The seats are comfortable and don't give you fatigue over a long drive. I do the drive from Edmonton to Kelowna yearly and with this car have never had to stop for anything longer than a pee break or refuel. My previous cars required me to get out and take a few stretches every few hours.
Fuel economy is fantastic, I average 600km per 55L fill city driving and have gotten as high as 900 on the highway.
