I got this car when I was 16, and I drove her like a 16 year-old. The up- keep was cheap: regular oil changes, brake work, tire changes, and tune- ups. The gas mileage was good and still is 8 years later. She's been an excellent car, and I hope to drive her for as long as I can. She's fun to drive, and I feel safe in her. I would buy this car 10 more times.
The power in 3rd and 4th gears is incredible for a straight-4. I love the location of the shifter - not to far out front, not to far to the rear. I love the sturdiness of the build.
