I've owned this car for almost six years it's got over 120,000 miles and still runs like new. I have never done anything to the engine or transmission, just regular oil change every 3K miles and a maintenance timing belt and water pump at 90K. Air filter and brakes when required. I'm getting 33mpg. It's a very reliable car.
I like the way it handles on the road. Fun to drive.
Cabin noise should be reduce specially when engine is over 4000rpm.
