I've just now finished using my 2004 Aerio Sedan and will now pass it to my daughter.
I bought it brand new and put almost every single mile on it myself.
Other than utterly routine stuff, I've done virtually nothing to this car.
Even the routine repairs may well be more due to my driving style than defects in the car.
As a matter of fact, I think I'm still using the original batter on the thing.
This has been a super car in almost every way that matters.
My favorite feature is also, ironically, almost the only negative about the car.
The high windows and spacious feeling of this car makes it feel incredibly roomy even though it is a tiny car.
Yet the high ceiling and windows also leave the car frequently blown around the highway in high wind conditions.
My only complaint would be driving in high wind conditions.
You definitely feel it.
Other than that - this has been a truly wonderful little car.
And I've now owned several little cars.
