I just passed 50,000 miles and three
years. I haven't had to do any work to
the car aside form oil changes and new
tires and brakes. It has been
absolutely solid and is a blast to
drive. For $15,000 you can't beat it.
I wish I went for the sunroof though.
My only real gripe is the mileage. I do
a lot of highway driving in my daily
commute and usually get 26 though
somestimes as low as 23 mpg.
Handling, interior. It feels like cars
that cost a lot more. My poor man's
BMW 3 series.
