I purchased this car used (only had 30,000 miles) in 2001. This is a great car and a good value as a used vehicle. The interior room leaves a little bit to be desired (I am 6'3"), but the seats offer enough adjustment to compensate. The front seats are not very comfortable, especially on long drives. The fuel economy is not exceptional, especially when you have to put premium in the tank. I have had a problem with the check engine light coming on and off and now it just stays on; however, I have not had it fixed since the driving performance has not been affected and I am cheap. Overall it is a blast to drive and runs like a scalded ape when the RPMs are high.
Fun to drive, quality, styling, nice stereo.
More comfortable seats, better economy. All a moot point since it is no longer manufactured.
