My car has over 145,000 miles on it and virtually trouble free. Only the fuel pump replaced (at $500 at 5 yrs and 125k mark) the rest was maintenance: tires, serpentine belt, battery, brakes, but nothing at all expensive. 2/3 of the mileage is freeway; the rest local. I drive 70, get 35mpg without air, 33 with air on. 5 speed. no frills, except CD player. No issues and no worries.
Economical, predictable. I have golden yellow, so the younger kids love it. Absolutely worry free. Pass through trunk with a low lying entry is nice! Is amazing what you can haul.
Cup holders in the way, poor seat support - I'm ready to get out to stretch after 2 hrs. Now at 145k starting to feel it bog down at take off. Time for its first official tune up and then pass down to my16 yr old son in good working, still good looking and safe condition
