Bought this car back in 2005, have had it almost 6 years and have put close to 50,000 miles on it.
This car has been through snow storms, and near floods.
Has never left me stranded or broken down on me.
Has never had a day where it didn't start.
This has been the most low maintenance car I've ever had.
Over the past 6 years I can't say that I've spend more than $1,200 on my car.
Which is like an average of $300 a year including oil changes and tire replacements etc.
Love this car, and at 140,000 its tickin' like it just left the dealer's lot.
Manual transmission has a good strength and feel for a car that only has 130 hp, it gets up there and has gone toe to toe with civics, eclipses and defeated them.
