I felt it was at the time because I enjoyed the look of the car, driving it, etc. It was a great car. I only traded it in when the warranty expired and I had to drive an hour out of town to get it serviced at a dealership. If you have a dealership in your city that can service it, then I think it would be worth the risk. Besides, mine didn't outwardly have problems with it, it just had some recalls that needed to be resolved. Had it broken down due to those recalls though, I wouldn't have had it fixed so easily because of the distance to my dealership.
