This was the first car that I ever bought. Bought it with 32K miles on it. CD player broke after having it a week. Was fixed for free under warranty. Replaced brakes twice, but they are like $15 each. Seats are uncomfortable and front seat belt strap hits you across the neck. Car handles rough and shocks/struts start to go bad. Doesn't have much power. Car handles HORRIBLE in the rain and windy weather. Slow oil leak started around 60K but not a major issue. Fog lamps stopped working around same time. Driver's side door started catching on frame and wouldn't open. Have to get rid of it now at almost 85K because transmission is bad, but has been reliable up until that point.
Make things sturdier - the outside dents so easily! More comfortable seats.
