This is a car I would recommend anyone to own. I've owned the car for over 6 years and have been absolutely thrilled with it. I've only replaced a radiator and items like drive belts, fuel filter, tires, brake pads, etc. One would change those items on any car over a long period of time. The only complaint I have is that the paint has faded. It has been a rock solid car and will graduate to track duty only.
Drives like a winner, great gas mileage, great handling, especially for an FF layout. Lots of space in the hatch.
