I have the 2.4L SXT version, and I purchased it with 32,000 on the clock in June 06. Not once have I ever had maintenance issues with the car. I've only ever done basic stuff (brake pads, tires, oil changes). The car handles with ease, yet at the same time, feels like a bus in terms of length. You can't see completely over the hood, which attributes to the seat designing. The car can get up and go, but don't expect this to be a high end BMW in camouflage. Its more in a competitors range of Mitsubishi Eclipses, Galants, etc. Solid car, nothing overwhelming.
Fun to drive, sleek body style, good build quality and reliability.
single cup holder is in the worst possible spot, right behind the shifter, making 2nd, 4th, reverse a pain. Not the greatest paint quality, would've been nice if there was more than the 155 HP to the car.
