This was my 1st new car and it was worth every penny. I put about 15thou/miles per year and it's still going strong w/just regular maintenance. The only major cost has been new tires at 40,000 and tune up at 30 and 60thou-miles. Hope to still have it when it gets to 120.
Awesome stereo, very good mpg, the higher seating position for a small car, very good handling, all the standard features and it looks cool.
cruise control, more hpwr, and even better mileage? oh yea and the road noise too.
