I purchased this little car in June on 2008.
I drive from Maine to Boston to work over 160 miles at a time.
Thankfully I have never had a single problem with the car and I am on only my second set of tires with lots of tread to go.
I have put on one set of brake pads and done a lot of oil changes, but that is all.
Gas mileage is about 27mpg, but I must say I do not always follow the speed limits!
I just read with a different air filter it may increase my mpg, so I'm going to give it a try.
Great in the snow and reliable, low maintainance, and room enough for most everything but a sheet of plywood!! :)
No complaints here! (ok one, I wish the gas tank were bigger!)
