I HATE THIS CAR. It was the first car I ever owned (which I regret). My parents got it used in 2004 with 115,000 miles, and I have had nothing but trouble with it. The air conditioner doesn't work (a sin in super humid southern Illinois), the back left speaker is blown, the driver's side window doesn't roll down, the paint is literally peeling off, I have a rust hole clear through the front of the hood, and the passenger side door doesn't open from the inside unless you hit against it REALLY HARD -- my brother bruised his shoulder. It is not reliable AT ALL. I wish I could tell you how many times I've been stranded on the side of the road, but I don't remember anymore.
It does get good gas mileage.
Change everything, then maybe you'll have a nice vehicle.
