I purchased this car in 2001 and it's been going strong ever since. I'm only giving it up now due to a check engine light that won't go off (so it won't pass smog). It's been bashed up on all four sides, had the axles replaced, a new clutch at some point, and driven almost 200,000 miles. (And the speedometer recently fell off and now makes a horrible noise!) AND, I've been very negligent about maintenance. I will genuinely, truly miss my car, "Casper."
My favorite features is that it's the easiest thing in the world to drive. I've driven a lot of cars and this one rocks. The only thing missing is nerve endings on the tires. It's totally manual; you know exactly what's going on and have a lot of control.
The cup holder over the phone charger is a bit inconvenient. Can't use both at the same time.
