ever owned. I loved the style and now I
love the car! I bought it brand new in
1996, and finally got a tune-up (2001)!
I'm not that nice to it, but the only
problems I've had were after 4 -6 years

to Atlanta, GA. She now has almost
100,000 miles. The mileage is great,

them. Sometimes I do the oil. She's a
The hatchback style. I love the profile.
The trunk cover could be more secure.
Also, the front seat door pockets could
be more secure...I use them to push
open the door, and now I've kicked one
off (took 6 years of abuse, though).
