I live in the NW and this is my girlfriends car. She has owned it since day 1 of its life and takes good care of it.
Pros; Dirves great, good gas milage, stars every time, dependable, and is comfortable for long hauls.
Cons; In the last 2 years things have started to break/fail. She has replaced the key ignition twice for 2 different reasons. Some rattles have started to show up, it is 10 years old. The sub-woffer has a short, we found out it's in the stereo it self.
Driving the car. I drive a Van or Truck most of the time. So not having to worry about parking is a good thing. Gas milage, with gas around $4.00 and getting around 30 on the Freeway is good.
