My 2012 has never been back to the dealership for repair. Built in March 2011 she was one of the first, I have 50,500 miles on the car and it still drives like it did when I brought it home. Black Betty has been through hellish roads, many states, vacations, trips, and back and forth to work many many times. Never an issue. Granted i have the S with a manual, and its dirt simple, but its reliable. I love the car, I have a lot of faith in my car that she will continue to get me from A to B without issues for a long time to come.
