5.5 yrs and going strong

I've had this vehicle for 5.5 yrs now, and I absolutely love it. It fits me like a glove, looks great, and it's dependable. I've had no mechanical problems to date, but have had all the usuall electronic problems (and sensors). If you're looking into the car, make sure it was well taken care of. Common problems include: A/C, power window switches, sunroof switch, MAF sensor, O2 sensor, and back panel lighting problems. I wouldn't take the car to the dealer to maintain (mucho $$$), since there are a number of indies that can do more than an adequate job.
