Incredible reliability and gas
mileage. I once got 42 mpg on a trip
from DC area to Albany, NY. Very
little maintenance required to keep
this car at its peak. This car has
been driven over 25k mi a year, has
been stolen and recovered, and has
almost 240k mi on the odo. Only now is
it showing signs of age.
Engine reliability, gas mileage, low-
revving (3000 rpm in fifth gives 82
mph), build/design quality. I even
love the oil filter location - just let
it drain before removing.
Front fender wills always rust before
anything else. Family-car body roll.
