Would not buy another

Nothing in beginning, not holding up with under 36,000 miles, paint, window leak, engine gearing up while accelerating.I would not buy another, as the paint job is inferior, the windows leak inside casusing stench of mold? Just not a healthy choice and I am a retired nurse, widow of age 74.
