Been driving this car for 155000 miles.... not a single repair; only scheduled maintenance. Absolute performance isn't great, but if you factor in the gas mileage and engine displacement, it's quite good and all I really need for around the town driving. Interior is holding up extremely well for its age. All the trim pieces are as tight as the day I bought it and the soft touch material on the dash exudes quality. The ride is very smooth though the wind and engine noise can be slightly obtrusive at high rpm and speed. Lots of rear leg room and large trunk. This car has aged like fine wine whereas my old Saturn SL1 aged like stale beer.
Gas mileage (34MPG with a lead foot), ride comfort, engine and transmission refinement, interior and overall build quality, roomy for its size.
Performance, engine and wind noise, would prefer slightly more substantial steering feel.
