My brother owned this car with the 3.0L V6 for a few years with little to no issues and he abused the hell out of it. It still drove like new, only making a slight ticking noise when low on oil (as it usually was). He got plenty of miles out of it (got it with probably 215k and died with over 250k) and probably only changed the oil twice in the few years and thousands of miles. I wouldn't suggest this but the car handled it well. Only reason it's not on the road today is because it caught fire due to oil that leaked onto the exhaust manifold while adding oil.

I got this car when I was a junior in high school, now I'm about to be a junior in college- nearly 4 years later and it's still going strong. It only had 116K miles on it when I bought it for $1,200 in 2007. Other than a wheel alignment I got recently, I haven't had to put any money towards repairing my car. I've taken it on moderately long trips with absolutely no trouble and not once has it left me stranded. My brother, a mechanic, recently looked it over and took it for a drive and said I have no reason to replace it as it will last me for many more years. Definitely not the most attractive car for a teenage girl, but it was $1,200 well spent, I'd say I've gotten my money's worth :)

This vehicle really surprised me The overall performance was beyond my expectation, also the spacious back seat area. Major maintenance: radiator. Now there is an oil leak and the transmission is dragging.
