I bought this car for $9k in 2005 with only 10k miles on it. I have a 20 mile commute, half highway half city. I get around 32 hwy and 30 average. It started missing in year 3 but new plugs fixed the problem. Also a sensor on the brake pedal broke and would not shift into gear. At 80k replaced the timing belt and water pump at the same time. Ran great. At 137k now it needs some engine repairs. Waiting to hear on cost.
Gas mileage. Easy to park. Easy to use controls. Good visibility. Roomier inside than it looks.
Center arm rest. Cruise control. Bigger cupholders for front passenger.
