We recently bought this car for my wife to drive. It needed a bit of work, but turns out the car is very easy to work on yourself, and the parts generally cost less then most (mainly because of popularity of the car). I really appreciated the diagnostic computer that you can use without any of the special hook up tools to figure out what that pesky check engine light really means. The car does have some weird vibration noises at times, but we got use to them, and the previous owner (friend) has heard them all along. Great Gas millage as well!!! We get close to 38 on the highway, which is better then my friend gets with his brand new Honda Civic
Diagnostic computer that doesn't need special tools to use. Great Gas millage. Very reliable.
Accessory belts are very hard to get too. And would love it if the drivers seat went back just one more inch (a little short for both my wife and i who are 6')
