This is a great looking car, very reliable, fun to drive, easy to maintain and a great car for the money. The downside, it rides like a truck, you feel every bump in the road and you will have to utilize the radio to drown out the wind and road noise. Will I keep the car long term, without question considering the cost of new cars.
This is easily the best car I have ever owned. It needs less attention to maintanance, repair, and recovery, than most, while providing comfort, styling, and efficiency well above the norm for a car in this price class. Given the chance to purchase this car (newer and more expensive) again, I would not hesitate. P.S. I bought the car w/140000 miles. It's still going strong. It'll probably go another 140000!
