Five years and running with no major
problems. It's a compact car, but 4 or
five fit easily. The mileage has
averaged about 28 mpg in mixed use, but
over 30 when strictly on the highway.
The best thing about this car? It's
never needed work. Oil changes, regular
tune-ups, tires. Nothing else. Highly
Value. Reliability. Fiesty engine (go
with the SE's bigger engine if
possible). Good mileage.
Tires -- they wore out quickly and are
odd-sized and therefore expensive to
replace. Cupholder blocks stereo. A few
rattles here and there.
