This is our first car. With a growing family, we're finally getting ready to buy something bigger and newer, but we'll keep it on as the second commuter. Extraordinary reliability. It has bounced over the rough streets of Washington DC with no problems for five years. Then we took it with us to Bogotá, Colombia, for another two years. Even though we could sell it for much more than the US value in Colombia, we'll keep it for our move to Mexico.
Easy to work on, so repairs are cheap. Not that they're often needed. Comfortable and quiet, even though it's a base model.
Washington DC residents had no trouble forcing the trunk lock. Eventually I disconnected it, leaving only the inside trunk release.
