I bought this car new in late 2000 and over 100K it hasn't ever let me down.
With the manual trans, it's consistently a blast to drive.
It has had minimal problems over the years, mostly incidental.
Never any engine issues.
Replaced O2 sesors, brakes, tires, fixed window motors, and the CD player is dead, and a tree fell on it and scratched the heck out of the paint (which was always a weak point) but I still can't justify giving this baby up!
What I'd get for it would never reflect the true value of this car!
Fun To Drive.
Way more car than you pay for.
Better paint job.
Pumped up soundsystem would be nice.
