Bought this car new and have put 230,000 trouble free miles on it. Seriously I have only done oil changes, tires, brakes, and the timing belt. Although I am still getting 36 mpg in mostly highway driving, it is getting a little long in the tooth and am looking for a new car. Want to by domestic, but cannot bring myself to not buy a Honda.
Reliability, mileage, low low low cost of ownership.
Gearing is tall so it revs high on the highway, but doesn't seem to impact mileage.
