Review
Bought used for daughter and she drove it for(6)years 30k miles. Very good fuel economy,30+ mpg. Car had some neglect, ran out of oil and driven 300+ miles until engine seized, then with only two quarts of oil it was driven another 200 miles. With 90K miles engine runs fine and does not burn oil! A very comfortable car. Repairs: Auto transmission-$1800, CV Joints, ball joints, brakes twice, front wheel bearing, rear slave cyl., two shift cables, replaced power antenna, power door motor, backup light trim seals leaked into trunk. Seems like a lot of repairs, but in all honesty, some could be related to a side impact/car wreck.
Favorite Features
30 mpg, fuel economy and comfortable to drive long distances. Great trunk space!
Suggested Improvements
Fix the auto transmission and shift cable design and this would be a fine car. Motor has always idled rough at stops, dealership says thats the way a 4 cyl.idles, could use some improvement.
