I have no complaints about the car other than the fact that the performance is basically non-existent. But for a 2L four, what can you expect. The mileage is ok, I usually get around 26 combined city/highway. Over the years its just been routine maintenance: oil, filters, belts, and the water-pump.
Gas mileage is pretty good. Not a bad car just to get around town.
Improve the final gear ratio to drop the RPMs while on the highway.
