I got this car in 2001, for my 17th birthday. It had 80,000 miles on it and ran me wonderfully for the next ten and a half years. I kept up with the maintenance and fluids and all that, which may have contributed to its lasting so long. It did have an almost bulimic hunger for motor oil, it went through it very quickly. Finally sold it in January of 2012, it had started demanding larger repairs and I decided to just upgrade cars. Good car, though. I always felt safe driving it, the pick up was surprisingly good, it was decent in the snow and it never once left me stranded.

Being a 17 year old, I was looking for a car that would get me from home work and school, nothing fancy, so I saw this little blue beast on the side of the road. I picked it up for a couple hundred bucks and expected to have a little beater that would last a month or two. I later found out that its a pretty solid car, its pretty quick for a 2.2 and its pretty dent resistant. I was amazed at this little car and I wish I would have bought one sooner. Driving it as much as I did I learned it can park in any spot and can keep up with my friends' eclipse and grand prix.

Like the Energizer Bunny, this car just
will not stop. I have had to rarely
put mine in the shop for surprise
repairs. The only major component that
has been replaced is the compressor;
but what do you expect living in
Houston and those awfully hot summers.
The gas mileage gets better as the car
gets older. One trip from Texarkana to
Houston I had the car fully loaded
down, with the tail dragging I only
used half a tank a gas. Mind you I was
doing roughly 80 mph the entire time.
This car is like a good wine, it gets
better with age. I'll never get rid of
