I am original owner. Have just turned
157,000 miles and car still strong.
Have just done required maintance.
Still a great car, consistently gets
30 - 32 MPG in daily city driving.
Performance better than any car in it's
class. The perfect communter car. The
design is still fresh after 14 years, a
sharp looking car.
Weak areas: 1.Front brakes; discs only
last about 20,000 miles. 2. CV boots
weak(?); have to replace them between
30,000 - 40,000 miles.
I plan to keep it for another 100,000
The strong, peppy engine (for its
size), 5 speed transmission (gears
nicely spaced), sun/moon roof, and
great gas mileage. A fun car!
