I bought this car 4 years ago. I use it to go to and from work. I've had 1 problem (sensor) in 4 years, 50K miles. The person who owned it before me regularly seviced the vehicle, I have done the same. I did not expect a lot out of this car given its history. I can't believe it's still around. Sensors go in any car w/age. You can buy this car now for <$3K. If you know the car has been maintained, I'd give it a try. I took the risk and still have it several years later.
Nice ride, cool A/C, easy to drive. Steep depreciation in price makes this car very afforable.
It is one of the frumpiest looking cars I've ever seen.
