Great mountain car, handles good on snow/ice/solid snow floor. Put 10K miles on it in 6 months. Has good get up and go, especially on steep mountain grades- can go 65 in 4th gear up a big grade (5 speed). No major problems until now (wheel bearing replacement, exhaust system problem, oil pan leak) and the paint scratches really easily. Overall great experience aside from the mechanic visits.
Great sound (replaced speakers), good gas mileage, easy to park, lots of space in the trunk.
The paint scratches easily, it uses oil, just general wearing out.
