I would have given it all 10s except for the AC. I have had trouble with mine not getting real cold. I paid about $400 once for it to be fixed, and it made no difference in the end. It works, just not well for our hot humid summers here in St. Louis. Now 12 years old, the electric window motors are wanting to quit. I won't put any money into this car and plan on driving it until it gives out. This vehicle has cost me very little to run for the past ten years. Brakes, mufflers, oil, tires, and the previously mentioned AC issue. I had to replace the clutch slave/master thingy once, and a cv boot once after a car did a hit and run on me while my vehicle was parked.
This car is solid and reliable. It's also a blast to drive if you want to rev it up. I have the 5 speed stick, but drive like grandma would most of the time. Occasionally though, I'll open it up. This car has never let me down. It's been the cheapest vehicle to own for the past 10 years too.
