I bought it new and it's been very reliable, fuel efficient, fun to drive (5 spd) and looks great too. I expect to keep it for at least another 5-6 years. I have read other reviews saying that there is a troublesome blind spot, but I haven't noticed it. Just adjust your mirrors people. google search "12 Steps to Rid Yourself of the Blindspot in Your Sideview Mirrors"
My only trouble so far with this car is that the driver seat rocks back and forth while driving. It is a known problem with the bushings in the height adjustment. I guess that happens when you're a big guy like me (6'-0" 250 lbs)
