We bought a used 98 model in late 2002. Since then we made a round trip to Canada (about 1500 miles) made a trip to Virginia twice and so far has put on mileage of 60k. The car runs great. No mechanical problems so far. Hope it would keep running, since I am a JDM fan, so astonished by its performance.
Nice exterior and interior for a small car. Comfy.
The handling is really questionable. Have strong doubts about its handling in rain and snow as it skids a lot.
