Overall review: I have had quite a few expensive problems with this car at pretty low miles. First the dashboard had to be replaced as part of it was curling(1000 miles). Next came the transmission. They didn't really explain it to me but it had something to do with its electronics. It would shift hard but it would come and go. It started at about 20K miles and didn't get fixed by the dealers until just under 36K. They told me because they couldnt replicate the problem they couldnt do anything about it even though they saw the check engine light. The other major issue I had was the water pump and a gasket went bad at 37k miles. That ended up being a $1400 bill. Im currently at 40k miles and just hoping to make it another few months without any issues until I turn it in. Would not recommend this vehicle.
