I currently own 3 all purchased on ebay, 2002, 2006, 2008. Only one has the need for a qt of oil every 1000 miles. Two of the three the drivers power window went,the power antenna went and the air conditioner compressor on one went at 160,000 miles. I use regular gas and get the fuel injectors cleaned for twenty dollars at Wal-mart. Get 17 to 28 mpg.avg 20. Two of the three have Michelin tires and get a great quite ride. Cheap tires effect the ride. Had one since 2002 drove 70,000 miles without ANY repairs other than window,brakes and now the AC. You can get a great car, great ride for under 5000 in 2008 dollars. My son is 22 and he likes it better than his brothers Audi. will go 200,000+mi
The comfort of the power leather seats. Luxury ride with decent MPG,huge trunk. you can fit three adults comfortably in back seat. Great for long trips Audio controls on steering wheel.getting better gas mileage than the guy driving his Nissan Murano and Maxima
Outside trim is very cheap and poorly affixed. better cup holders,smaller engine oil capacity, visible coolant bottle, flow through air capability without using ac or heater.
