36K and going strong!

2001 Saturn S-Series SL 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl 5M)
I've had my manual-transmission 2001 SL for 17 months now (36K), and I love it! Best thing is MPG: 34 city, 40 hwy (41.8 in one fairly level 300-mile stretch traveling at 70 mph)! Acceleration is adequate. Saturn service is EXCELLENT. Downside: Backseats cramped for adults. Traveling faster than 50 mph with rear windows rolled down produces an irritatng humming. Scheduled maintenance is unneccessarily aggressive (tires rotated twice now).
