I'm a full time college student and a mom so this car mostly fits the budget!
I bought my car 6years ago with 32,000 miles now it has just over 175,000 (I drive a lot) it's showing it's age now.
The biggest problem is the A/C unit. The clutch arm went out 3 years ago and it's just not feasible for me to have it repaired. Not having AC is annoying but not nearly as annoying as 2 complaining kids in the back seat.
The best things about this car are the adjustable seats, it has a fair amount of power, the AWD is amazing in the snow and other than oil changes and tires I haven't spent much on repairs.
The upholstery on the inside of the doors peels off. The drivers seat is defiantly for smaller people, I'm 5'8" and sometimes I wish I had a little more room.
