Not a bad little car. The only vehicle I've been in contact with that was more reliable was a Toyota Corolla. At nine years and 146,000 miles it still runs beautifully. The oil pressure sending unit developed a leak in 2002, which caused the alternator to die, but that's the only non-routine issue I've had to date. She's a little underpowered, but I can't complain too much. The back seat is very easy to get in and out of for a 2-door car.
Gas mileage of 35 city/40 hwy rocks!
Could have a little more pickup. Interior is pretty bland. Interior sunroof cover has a tendency to get jammed open after you slide the sunroof glass back a couple times, so I would think they could have designed that a little better.
