I've actually owned 2 of these cars
(the first being a 2 dr XE). The
first car's timing chain guide wore
out at about 220,000 miles. I scraped
it out for little parts, and use them
to replace the occasional need for the
one I'm driving now. It has a
remanufactured engine in it, so
there's no telling how far this one
will last. It's a good compact car.
Starts easily in any temerature (even
a freezing 20 or 30 below).
Maintenence is a sinch.
It doesn't hurt to put in a nice CD
player, but my car (in it's lifetime)
has been broken into about 3
times...by force. So, in that
case...get a car alarm.
