This car has done great mileage for me. I drive it in the city. I get 20- 23mpg. I'm on my second battery and second set of tires. It has been in the shop only once with something more major -- the starter went and I decided to replace the water pump just in in case. This happens at 85,000 miles. Recently, it has developed a water leak and the AC blower is only working on high, but I'm fixing to trade it, anyways. Otherwise, it hasn't had any problems in 8 years!
Good power. Good trunk size. Good looks. Reliable.
