My '97 just got a new clutch, just before that a new serpentine belt. Other than those recent jobs only brakes, tires and oil changes and it's
still getting me to work every day at 32 mpg.
For a cheap little car the quality has been surprisingly good, even great.
Fun to drive, great gas mileage, easy to park and very small turn radius.
OK, so it's a little cramped inside if you are close to 6 feet but it is after all a small car. I wish they'd make those clear polycarbonate headlight covers last longer without getting so foggy looking.
