This has been one my better vehicles ever. Except for a factory replacement of the fuel level sending unit a few days after purchase, (it wasn't gauging correctly), I've had no problems. My wife uses it for a 50 mile daily commute and it keeps on going. It still runs like brand new and drives as straight as new, hasn't needed an alignment as of yet.
Acceleration is brisk and handling is more than sufficient for crowded freeway driving. Responsive brakes and smooth ride. Oil changes are a breeze. The fold-down back seats have been more than handy.
Occasional glitches in the automatic shift lever, you have to be careful with the lock button. The window noise at road speed is a bit annoying. The stock stereo is a bit anemic, I replaced the door speakers with aftermarket and that helped.
