I used to own one of these, found it
annoying to have to own a set of
jackstands and floor jack just to
change the oil. It was fairly reliable,
with the exception of the alternator,
but all around it good vehicle, a nice
mix of performance and economy. And
yes, get your auto transmission filter
changed every 15,000 miles.The
Automatic used in these are weak and if
not maintained on this cycle, can cause
some serious headaches. I changed the
filter on mine at this interval and had
no problems after over 60,000 miles.
