Like most cars if you take care of it, it will keep running. Original engine/performance going strong. Transmission lasted 140 k. But, power doors and windows, between seat cup holders, manual seat adjuster, radio lights, power washer, visor, storage lids, glove box door were all not operational after 6 years. Sound system, seating set up, roof rack have been great.
