"PROS: Performance/handling has been outstanding; no problems at all with drive train; more then enough power with 4-cyl turbo; plenty pf interior/trunk room for family & stuff; fun to drive.
CONS: More repairs & recalls then any vehicle I've owned; mostly small repairs; electrical system causes the most problems; would strongly recommend a more reliable car."
