I bought this car for my 40th birthday. It had 76,000 miles on the odometer. And the car was in PERFECT condition. As a Dad with 3 kids in the house, safety is number one. I paid $6,500 FOR THE CAR AND HAVE CONSIDERED THIS CAR THE BEST i HAVE EVER OWNED. It isn't the prettiest. But, I KNOW I could put 200,000 miles on this car. I just put a new set of Goodyear Eagle GT's on this car and it handles great. And for the harshe winters here in southern Michiagan, the car is exceptional.

Have driven this for over 42000 miles and this vehicle has given me pure satisfaction. Although it could have a bit more power, it still delivers on average of 23 mpg. Not bad for its size. Got 27 mpg on the last trip to Michigan, very comfortable to travel in as well.
