Bought this car from it's first owner with 200,000 miles on it. Now has over 250k and we've only had to replace the muffler, the harmonic balancer and the alternator - amazing for a car that's been around this long. "Reliable" doesn't even cover it! Couldn't ask for a better "get out of debt" car. Not very pretty after hitting a deer last winter, but one learns humility :).
Handles all road conditions beautifully, runs like a champ who doesn't know the word "quit".
We have to check a bolt on the harmonic balancer regularly, as it likes to come loose. The cup holders are in a silly place and don't hold much anyway.
