I've used this car for my commute for
the past 3 years. So far it's been
very reliable. Sure, there's normal
wear and tear on brakes and such, but
for the price I paid for it, it's been
great. The car's at 80K now, and I
have not had any problems with it yet.
I'm not planning on getting rid of it
until at least 110K.
It's a pretty plain car, really. It
is reliable, though, and priced
right. Gas mileage is good too. I've
gotten a pretty much regular 27 - 30
mpg out of it since I've owned it.
I'd prefer the transmission not to be
sealed. It makes me nervous not to be
able to check it. Only a mechanic or
the dealer is supposed to check
transmission fluid. But, like I said,
no problems yet *knock on wood*.
