I purchased this car used six years ago
at 30,000 miles. It now has 90,000.
Until this week, I had virtually no
problems with it, driving it on many
long trips (including coast-to-coast
several times) and through sand, snow,
and other less-than-ideal road
conditions. Depsite the $900 repair
bill for a new water pump, various oil
seals/gaskets, a tensioner bearing, and
a timing belt, I've been very, very
pleased with the car, especially
After having this car, I would never
buy a car WITHOUT all-wheel drive.
I've been pleasantly surprised by fuel
mileage, which is consistently 31 mpg
on the highway.
With age, the suspension has gotten a
little creaky. Position of cup-holder
