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
All the storage space. Silky smooth shifting. So easy to park!Very easy to access engine for maintenance.
If only it could be made to be more comfortable! Make the interior less "tinny" and a wee bit more head room would be nice. Too much hard plastic and tin.
