I have purchased this car new in 93 and enjoy more now that when I first bought it. Besides the recommended maintenance, including 2 timing belts and getting ready for my 3rd one, the only thing I had to replace was my power steering unit an brake calipers. The only items not functioning at this time is my coffee cup holder, lights on my dasboard and radio. If I get a door ding, I fix it right away. I resurfaced the front seats, but have no cracks in them. People are truly amazed when I tell them my car is 14 years old and has 293000 miles on it, using a quart of oil every 3000 miles. When I buy a new car it will be a Lexus.
Looks, comfort, reliability and besides the purcase price has been very economical to own.
More cup holders and a 5 or 6 speed transmision, items that have been rectified in the newer models.
