I put about 25,000 miles a year on this car and I have had one engine problem, a sensor that the dealership said was a recall on the '03 but not a recall on my VIN number. Considering it was a $300 repair, I wasn't happy but over all has been very reliable.
Good acceleration and handling for a moderately priced 4 door sedan. Reliable and looks good.
Needs more room in the back seat. Could get better gas mileage. The performance tires have been terrible on the snow and have not done well on the Chicagoland streets, I have replaced 6 so far in two years due to pothole damage.
