I purchased this car new in 2001. It currently has 125K miles on it and have probably spent maybe $1700 in maintenance over the last two years. Before that only tires, brake shoes and oil changes. This car has been surprisingly reliable and comfortable.
I didn't expect to keep this car as long as I have but, it just keeps on going.
Had a little annoying issues like passenger rear windown would not roll down for a few years then suddently it decided to start to work and hasn't stopped since.
The only real beef with the car is where they put the drink holders. With the gear shift in park, you can't put anything larger than a soda can until you put it in gear. No CD player is the other.
Good accelleration, comfortable seats, good visibility, decent miliage.
CD player, larger better placement of cup holders. (picky I know)
