Bought it new back in '00, have put just under 195,000 on it. Still love it. Had five O2 sensors replaced (4 under warranty). All other service routine and repairs reasonable for age, mileage, and my driving, I'd think.
Manual transmission. Fantastic fuel economy (still get upward of 28 MPG mixed; originally got well into the mid-30s)! Peppy and fun to drive, especially for its size. Very roomy. Refined interior. Quiet. Full-size spare!
