Default Advices for the car

Looking to buy one of these cars. What should I really look for before buying. Any common faults in the car ? How does it behave in winter conditions ? Do you guys find parts easy ? Is there an year, engine, transmission or anything else that I should avoid buying ?

Are you looking at the manual transmission or CVT? There have been people who have suffered minor to major problems with the CVT.

It is the automatic transmission, so some people have had problems with it ? How about overheating anyone had a problem ?

I don't think there's much info on here about it happening. Some people say they've had over heating issues (CVT going into limp mode) and on another forum some had suffered total CVT failure with it being replaced. Apparently they're very fussy with the trans fluid level. It's a Jatco CVT so try Googling that with Kizashi and you should find info.

Try looking a Kizashi Club forums for more info too.
