I purchased this car on my own when I was 17 [last year] and I never took it in for a single problem. Actually, it'd been through two accidents by the time I got into a third accident where the other party totaled the car. I hadn't ever put any money into it, it's a sound, tight little car, and it gets pretty good gas mileage as well. It's an inexpensive buy and I recommend it to any first-time driver. It made a few weird noises once it got below zero, but nothing serious.
It had a very nice sound system. Granted, I bought the car from a private party with an added CD player.
It gets a bit funky in the winter shifting-wise, but nothing else.
