I bought this cute little car 7 years ago, used, with 80k miles on it. I now have 140k, and it's still going strong. I get about 27mpg highway. It has plenty of pickup, and is very comfortable. I do reg.maintenance/oil changes. I have had to replace the water pump and wheel struts, and put all new brakes on last year. I keep thinking I should buy a newer car, but this one is so reliable and economical!
Love the leather bucket seats and sporty look. Very comfortable for long rides. Nice big trunk space. Also love the stereo controls on the steering wheel. Good sound system.
One thing is inconvenient...battery is located beneath the windshield washer reservoir, so if you need a charge or to change battery it's a little awkward.
