I use it for commuting 190 miles a day. Extremely reliable. New brakes at 114,000 miles, timing belt at 100,000, fuel pump at 157,000. Only thing I replaced without wearing out was alternator at 44,000 miles.
Handles great with better tires. Average 32 mpg on highway commute averaging 70mph.
Get rid of original Firestone Firehawks and get some good tires. Change out crummy radio/tape deck.
