Picked up used in 8/01 w/ 42K miles.
Now at 67K and running good. Did
recently have to replace power brake
booster $230 and repaced factory warped
rotors with new aftermarket $100. Had
car in for 60K service $150. Only
other issue is with sub-zero cold
starts in Wisconsin winters. Car needs
a little gas and a couple of minutes to
get the shivers worked out. But that's
to be expected with a 6 yr. old vehicle.
Comfortable driving position
(seats/wheel size and placement.
Enough getup and go without sacrificing
fuel economy 2.4L. Rear seat legroom.
Sporty suspension. Responsive gas
pedal (except when flooring see
improvements). Good sound system.
Road/tire noise can get tiresome.
Center stack set a little low,
cupholders too far forward.
Transmission lag (1 second) during
highway passing manuevers.
