I bought this car as a second car to use on my private investigation job. I have driven it all over NJ and am now in NC. I only intended to get a year or so out of it, since it had 94K on it when I bought it in 2002. Now 6 years latter I still have it. It has hardly cost me anything since I bought it. A/C, everything works great. Getting 25 mpg around town and 30 on hwy. I would like something newer, but can't get rid of this car. Best $1,100 ever spent getting it.

5,000 RPM. The interior is
functional and well designed, the
exterior is conservative yet handsome
and almost looks slightly athletic at
certain angles. The engine gets good
gas mileage no matter how I drive it.
It runs well. Road and engine
vibrations are felt throughout the
car. It handles well despite its
relatively soft suspension and the
generous body roll. The steering is
relatively heavy and is fairly
frictionless, but it can be a little
