I had this car for 17 years before having to make the sad decision to let her go at 225k miles when she had electrical issues that were going to be to pricey to fix.
In its early days I experienced gas mileage in excess of 50 mpg hwy and nearly 60 mpg
on long road trips at approx. 70 mph.
Even when it got older she still got over 40mpg highway but I chose to no longer take her on long road trips for fear she wouldnt make it.
This was also the best car I have ever driven in the snow.
I never got stuck once.
Wish I could find another one.
I'd take it in a heartbeat.
