This is my 1st car right after college.
I have driven the hell out of it
(93,400 mi). I have lots of money to
buy a new car but don't because this
baby has never given me any real
problems. Past problems have been a
cracked gasket, broken door hinge, and
the CD player laser sometimes messed
up. Just now I broke my inside door
handle and a fuse keeps blowing so I
can't shift out of park (but you can
override that). All these things are
minor. I replace brakes every 40k mi.
Gas mileage is between 25-29 mpg.
Yearly maintenance/repair costs (for
everything) are approx $500. Can't go
wrong there! I saved lots of money w/
Comfortable car, stereo speakers,
REALLY peppy engine for a 4 cyl.
