Had this car for 6 years now and other than regular maintenance I have spent nothing on it! Laughing as I pass the gas pumps! Gets between 40-45 mpg on long highway trips. Went over the Rockies several times, a little slower than everyone else, but very sure. the ride is definitely "no-frills" but it's got so much else in its favor that you don't really care. Now have 210,000 miles and it doesnt show any signs of dying. I plan on keeping this car till it takes it last breath and then will look for another

Only car I've ever owned. It's up to 198000 miles and still starts every morning (even in MN cold). Only reason I'm selling - need a 4-door with baby on the way. Replaced engine 1.5 years ago, spent alot less each year on repairs than I would have on a car payment. Some quirks that others might not like (body integrity-noisy at times)... but I've come to love! My husband - who really didn't like my car when we first met - is not talking about hotrodding it - or just using it as a winter driver.

I have owned my little colt for over three years and have yet to experience any major problems.
When I purchased the car it had 40k miles. It now has 103k and still purrs like a kitten. It is not
the most comfortable or stylish car on the road but it is very reliable and great on gas. I have replaced
the oxygen sensor, brakes, tires........ and that is it. A great little car
