We purchased this car about two and a half years ago for a little less than $3K. It has held up very well over all and now has about 122K miles on it. The starter needed to be replaced and the ball joint on the passenger side wheel just was replaced but all other maintenance has been standard stuff. Given that the car is 12 years old, that's a pretty decent record for two and a half years.
Gas gauge -- hasn't registered properly since we bought it. Seatbelt seems to always get stuck in the door. Car needs a little more pep. Is a little low-powered for this day and age.
