my wife bought this car when it was
two years old with 45K miles on it,
and it's been our family car and now
it's my commuter car. It now has
almost 120K and still runs great. The
engine is one of the best mixes of
power, fuel economy and reliability.
No major unexpected repairs, only had
to Jerry-Rig the power antenna to be
permanently in the up position
(plastic gears in the antenna motor
started to wear and chatter, extremely
loud, over $300 for a new motor).
Don't go cheap with replacement tires
on this car, good tires improve ride
Great performance/mpg balance,
reliability, styling doesn't look 10
years old, good speakers (I put in cd
player, HUGE sound improvement).
Larger cup holders, some transmission
lag on take-off from rolling stops,
Headlights could be a little brighter
on low beam.
