Bought mine brand new and have put 171k
miles on it. Still runs and looks
great. Incredibly reliable. Have
replaced alternator and clutch (at
151k) and struts (at 155k). Otherwise,
no repair expenses. I will drive it
til the wheels fall off (which at the
rate it's going, won't be til 400k
Mileage, styling (compared to others in
its class & age), roominess for
passengers. Love my 5 speed.
If they would've mated the 5 speed with
the V6 that year, I'd have bought one.
Gas cap holder on gas filler door broke
off in year 1 (no excuse!); plastic
exterior door handle broke off in my
hand at year 9.5 (I forgive them).
