I've always had cars that were poor mechanically. This car has been awesome. I have done nothing to the engine except replace the spark plugs and change the oil. I replaced the gas tank and general maintenance. It's comfortable to drive but now with 146000 miles on it, it's starting to show its age. I don't get much power going up hills anymore. I'm going to be sad to see her go. There won't be another one like it out there as trouble free as this was.
Comfort, styling, trouble free overall.
Can't be improved now since they don't make them anymore, but I've had trouble with the interior quality. The cup holders broke and not due to abuse. The holders for the visors broke and I've lost the covers for the lug nuts as I have alloy rims.
