We bought this car with 125,000, and it has been faithful to us for 7 years and 75,000 miles. We have done standard maintenance for a 17 year old car (new muffler, changed the belts, new clutch). Other than that, nothing but standard maintenance. The car has never broken down, all the electronics still work, and it still runs great.
40 mpg, 37 with four people in it on the hwy. 33 in the city. Incredibly reliable. 5 speed is fun to drive.
I am sure they have improved it over the last 17 years!
