have driven the car across the continent (Florida to Alaska) while getting an average of 40-43 mpg with the backseat and trunk fully loaded. the car did very well surviving the Yukons not-so-friendly roads (potholes, dips, washboard, sometimes very steep). i would definately recommend this car to anyone on a budget or someone who just wants a functional car that gets you from A to B (that would be me).
the climbing ability of this car uphill is quite amazing, especially as loaded as i had it. also everything is very basic, no fancy bells or whistles to get in the way.
cd player and better speakers (blown after the first week i had it). cupholders are quite small and interfere with dashboard. no tachometer. needs personal sweedish massage babe to come with it.
