Performance

Great MPG sometimes up tp 64MPG, if I keep to steady acceleration.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Fuel relay switch failed at 15,000 miles and left me stranded. The radio mute switch doesnt work. I have had to have the oil sump replaced twice with little satisfaction from the dealer about the cause.
