"Bought the car with 45k miles on it in good shape. After a year began having problems starting car. Changed batteries and still had occasional issues. Next came the overheating. This started out of nowhere and became a big problem quickly. No leaks in coolant pump despite having to refill at least once a week. I was able to drive this car fine for a year with the occasional overheating in the summer. Radiator was replaced and then transmission started to go shortly after. Great car but from my experience not worth the repairs."
"We purchased this car as a certified used car and have never regretted it. It has gone through two teenagers and both now 20 something's still love it. The all wheel drive is great had very few mechanical problems.. Interior is still beautiful."
Cons: "not a sports car but with sport bumper and sides,"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bought the car with sports grill and bumpers because of sleekness. Great on highway with turbo that kicks in and quickly accelerates, but still gets >30mpg highway at 89 mph. This car remains stylish, and costs for repairs though often high, are infrequent over 10 years. The Swedes build a great auto!!"
Pros: "You'll unlikely find a better car for the money."
Cons: "Maintenance costs."

"This car is an excellent blend of go fast and comfort. It will go and stop in any weather. Extremely responsive to driver inputs. It is also deceptively powerful. Doesn't attract attention. Does keep yours."
"It rides like a Buick. Like floating on pillows for suspension. Very well designed interior and high quality options, great sound system, and not bad looking on the exterior. But being behind the wheel is dismal. Unresponsive steering, braking, AND throttle. But, there are plenty of people that don't care about that stuff. If you are one of those people, then this is indeed an excellent car."
