I bought this car over e-bay at 85k
and I now have 104k on it. I've spent
$2500 since then for all the normal
stuff (brakes, tires, struts, timing
belt, ect,). It lives outside and
since I'm always in a hurry, I drive
it hard. So far, it has taken all my
abuse in stride. Since it has the 5-
speed, it can be fun to drive. The
ride is rough, but it handles well.
The rear fenders have started to rust
where the wheel well meets the rear
bumper. This may be due to poor care
on the 1st owners part. No other
AWD is great. As long as you have
good tires and you don't bottom the
car out, you can make it through any
snow storm. Lots of leg room for back
seat passanges. Good trunk space.
Sporty look for a 4-door. Nice wide
tires. Does not use oil.
Better milage. Less noise. Softer
ride. Bigger cup holder!
