With the hot tune i have over 100 more TQ from stock and over 40HP and boy can you feel that TQ! Great for towing my small RV and it runs up the hills now! 100 more TQ make it feel like a whole new vehicle and 18mpg towing a 5k trailer! Beat that!

No significant problems yet, but just waiting to see what happens due to past brand experiences.

It has suffered several serious problems despite being just five years old and mostly driven on-road. Cracked radiator, broken driveshaft, now leaking power steering hoses. I have owned 10-year-old cars that never had so many problems.

Catalytic converter failed after just 35k miles. Had a couple of transmission issues, although they were covered by the 7 years powertrain warranty.

Recall on master brake cylinder. 4 wheel alignment (toe) was grossly out of spec from the factory. TPMS is not reliable.
2006 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4

The powertrain.
2005 0 My complaints about this car are limited, but critical. In the time I had this vehicle, I drove less than 80k miles. In that time, I had to replace a head gasket (At 50k), and was about to do so again (at 79k) before I made the decision to sell it and get something else. The window motors are attached to the windows using plastic pieces that break easily, and are non-replaceable, requiring the entire window motor and armature to be replaced (For around $200, just for parts) rather than replacing the 10 cent plastic clip that broke. The CD player started acting up at around 25k miles, and by 45k was dead and gone. I admit that this was several years into ownership, but it wasn't that frequently used.

Entire car feels like a rattle trap. Transmission going bad after only 30,000 miles. Starts hard.
2003 4dr Sedan 165-horsepower 2.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
This car was in the shop more days then I actually drove it. Worst vehicle I have ever owned.

1. Paint poor in 1st year, chips off 2. Engine sensors die often (recalls galore) 3. Pre-Catalytic converter disintegrates and particles are sucked into engine and kill it. 4.Butterfly valve screws and plate fall into engine from intake manifold. & mo
