I am a living testament about the reliability of this car. Bought in 2000 and lost this car in 2006 in a wreck, not at fault. I put 134k in 6 years in extreme winter conditions. This car did not give a single issue in any weather, summer, winter below 0, conditions. With out an issue, I drove 180 miles daily on this for 6 months icy, snowy conditions of WI. Only thing I did was regular oil change and scheduled maintenance. Most of all, impact at around 35 mph, Accords front and Malibu 06 rear right, my young son in the back seat (WEARING SEAT BELTs) we walked away from the scene without a single scratch. If this car has factory suggested maintenance history, I will suggest buying it.
Good fuel economy, reliability in all aspects. Important safety features come standard.
