High miles, low operating cost - Good value

2005 Chevrolet Classic Fleet 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
Driving an average of 1200mi/wk, I require reliability and economy. Highway average always 30-38. This car starts every day, and I feel confident driving it daily w/o the distraction of 'issues'. OEM tires (Eagles) are superb still with over 80k on them. Brakes are average. Body integrity above average, but with odd paint peel on rear bumper!? At 25k, sway bar bushing went. Recently (81k) I replaced fr wheel bearing (sealed unit, $375), struts ($325), and a few misc items. Now the rear power window doesn't work (hardly used!). Interior design is awkward and tight. Interior road noise level is bearly acceptable at highway speeds. Car tends to labor up hills, has acceptable acceleration otherwise. Handling is very good.
