Default Considering buying a used Kizashi

Looking at a 2012 6 speed manual with 37k miles. What issues do these cars have that I should keep in mind?

Ok, how about this. Seeing as the company is no longer in business in the US and I do all my own repairs, what is the likelihood of this car outlasting the loan before needing a part that is unavailable?

Forget about it. Made an appointment for a test drive and they sold it before I got there. Bastards.

Well that sucks- the manual is definitely the version you want to get.

...Unless like me, you're in a snowy place like Colorado & one main consideration is getting an AWD car. Then you are stuck with CVT. Still a very solid choice. Loved the 1st one I found for the GF so much I bought one for myself. I used CarGurus.com to search for the 2nd because they are a bit hard to find & that site emailed me any new ones that popped up in the area. They analyse the prices... you should be able to beat their "fair deal" by a healthy margin if you are patient.

I mentioned that because the Kizashi CVT's can suffer expensive mechanical problems. If you need the AWD then be careful what you're buying.... or perhaps even look at other vehicles?
