I bought this car right out of college,
my first new car - and it has been a
truly great car to own. Can't really

I think I may drive this one into the
ground - will make a great 2nd car when
I finally decide to get something new.
Interior quality has been excellent.
Still looks new - plus no squeaks or
Great looking design has held up to the
Engine has just enough power/torque for
my occasional lead foot.
A bargain at under $24k new in '98.
Engine power lacking compared to 2004
4-speed auto trans a bit soft and,
surprisingly, clunky at times.
Some minor electrical bits - power
window switch, tail light bulbs - have
needed to be replaced more frequently
