*bought this when my husband drove a lot for sales. *my car now for several years and I keep insisting I won't trade it. *doesn't have the cushiest seats in town, but I can go to my car every morning and know that it will start! *We've been religious about good maintenance *but I've only changed the battery twice *made one good-sized repair *radiator fan. *air conditioning-the only draw back. The a/c has had some problems- the "flap" that sometimes sticks so that air can't circulate into the vehicle will cost about another 300 in labor because of is location. Overall, an incredibly reliable vehicle.
Easy to park, I call it my "SUV wanna be" It has all the positives of an SUV, and the short economy bits of a simpler car. First set of tires took us over 100k miles!
