Overall, a solid car. Got the car at 95k miles, now at 150k. Great fuel mileage (~30MPG). Big repairs: alternator, heater coil. Then the normal stuff--brakes, tires, oil changes. All in all, a very solid car. Tends to start hard in the rain (probably needs plugs and wires), but it gets from A to B with no major hassles. Not a big fan of the interior--the round knobs on the sides of the dash are okay, but power window controls are mounted on the front of the center console! Beware the high beam switch; my turn signal lever snapped off trying to get the switch to work. Paint is peeling, and all four wheels have rusted out now, meaning a trip to the junk yard for "new" rims.
Solid performer with few major repairs; excellent fuel mileage for an older car. Fold-down back seat increases trunk space (great for moving that new LCD you can buy with the money you save buying *this* car.)
Back seat legroom is non-existent. Odd location of power window controls (though you get used to it). If you buy one, check the wheels for rust; if you see any, a trip to the junk yard is in your future.
