Bought this car new; now have 105K
miles. Had to reset air bag sensor 2x.
Front brakes lasted until 100K miles &
rear brakes not yet worked. This has
been great no-frills reliable
transportation. 5 Speed provides great
gas mileage - consistent 38+ mph in
the summer 32mph in the cold winter. 5
speed also allows for adequate
acceleration when needed. Under load
(> 2 people) need to delay shifting if
you're merging onto a hwy. With rear
passengers rear end tends to bottom
out easily. Front room comfortable for
someone up to 5'10; beyond that it
gets cramped. Rear room gets tight for
anyone over 4'. Body still holding up
well after 7 lovely winters.
Gas mileage, smooth 5 speed
better suspension, more rear leg room,
better quality fabric in the standard
