This car has been in my family for 11 years & it's been great! My mom has put a/b 100 miles a day for the past 3 years. Not too much work, had to replace brakes & engine. Cute little car. Looking at the 2004 model for my mom's new car. i'm 16 & its gonna be my first car- GREAT first car! We've put 272,000 miles on it & its going strong. Hopefully it will last a few more years or at least to 300000 miles!
