At the end of the day a car should be about reliability, right? In the time Ive had this vehicle, and with only around 13K miles, it has been in the shop 9 times! Granted, five of those times were for the same issue which the dealer inexplicably couldn't fix

I bought this car because, in my opinion, it was a cheaper alternative to Mini Cooper. I absolutely love everything on the interior of the car. Would not change anything there. Nor the exterior really. My only issue with the car is with how hardly it shifts gears. Every time
