I bought this new in Feb. 2007 with only 4 miles on it. In 5 years I only had one breakdown. The starter went out last year about 50k. I did not try to use the warranty just had it replaced. I have kept up all maint.. Including the expensive timing belt and water pump. That was 1600 but I also replaced the battery and serpintine belt.
Anyway the car is not a hot rod but will get you out in traffic. Gas mileage is best at 55 to 60 mph. Drove it on hwy at 75mpg and gas mileage plummeted. Still get about 21 city/hwy. Drive well, very comfortable and love the storage capacity.
I am at 66k miles now still no problems.
Decent gas mileage depending on how you drive. Very comfortable and great storage capacity. Easy to get in and out of as you get older and or heavier.
I do wish that it had more pep to it or as a trade off better gas mileage.
