I am giving another update on my car which I purchased on 9/1/12. It now has just under 18,000 miles with no problems to report. It continues to be a very pleasing car. The ride, handling, braking, and appearance are all just as new. It has not developed any rattles or squeaks. The fuel mileage is excellent and better than I had hoped for. This car is really a joy and it really makes people look at it. I have also been pleasantly surprised at the performance of the Firestone tires, that was a point of concern for me. I must say that the people that developed this car and those that assembled it have done an excellent job.
