For over 8 years this car has given
my family a reliable ride with no more
than routine maintenance. It handles
very reliably in the snow and mud
seasons - even on dirt roads, and
the body has held out well even
against road salt. Engine
well-designed for do-it-yourself
maintenance. Only complaints are a
gas gauge that stopped working a
few years ago, and the interior often
fogs up and takes a long time to
clear. It's become a little cramped
since adding kids to the family.
Otherwise, I'd keep it forever!
