Although the ride is a little soft, the acceleration is adequate and I get an average of just over 25mpg. The car is comfortable and very reliable. It sat garaged for a year (twice) while I was deployed and started up again with no problems. It's getting close to 200,000mi and still running strong. Lived in NY, TX, and NC with it - handled well in the snow and did fine in the heat; heading to KS next. No major mechanical issues; I've been lightly rear-ended twice, but only scratched the bumper.
Comfortable interior, the lights are easy to replace, the fuel efficiency is surprisingly good, reliability has never been an issue, and the paint still shines.
The turn radius is huge, the handling isn't sporty (but never really expected that), and I've never liked the look of the plastic trim panels.
