I bought my car brand new in 2002. Oil changes were done every 5,000 miles. I did have some trouble with the way the alternator was wired, and also trouble with a sensor. The car would not move when stepping on the gas, even while driving. The emission control needed replaced, but was just under an 8 yr. warranty. I drove the car until 2010 and my daughter drives it now.
reliability, fun to drive.Car sets lower to ground and was easy for me to get in and out, but not for larger people.
A regular rim and tire for spare, shocks, instead of struts.
