This car has been very very loyal to me. Great gas mileage and very few repairs. I have driven it for 6.5 years and it has proven to be very reliable. It's not a pretty car; my kids don't want to be seen in it. I told them they'll be begging my to drive it when they get their licenses; I would have done backflips at 16 if this was my car. But I won't review the cars I had to drive with the rusted floorboards. It is great for a small person with 1 or 2 kids; nothing fancy and you do get plenty of road noise -- so turn up the radio!
Awesome gas mileage; about 30 MPG. My LS does have power windows & doors, so if you close your eyes, you COULD be in a nicer car.
Cup holders in front console are way too shallow to hold any cup of any size; good for change though. There is a middle holder that is a little deeper. Emergency brake is really touchy; its pretty close to the gear shift and if you are not careful, you'll engage it.
