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.
Gas mileage - even at 12 years old - still getting close to 30 in the city. Love the hatch space, lots of space with seats folded down.
I wish they still made it! Especially the Dodge/Mitsubishi combination! Mine was the Canadian version - so things inside the hood were different (backwards) - some things hard to get at (air filter).
