The car is generally OK, but with age, things go wrong. The trade off to repair bills is that I do not have a car payment each month. My issues were the transmission (which gave at 60,000, but was under a dealer provided extended warrantee), air conditioner (75,000) and an electronic issue that affected the ignition (90,000). I seem to be replacing the battery more often than I would like. I am not sure if that is the car's fault or the battery that was purchased (AutoZone).
