We have owned this car since 1998.
Bought it with 26K miles and now have
133K in Oct 2004. My wife put it into
a ditch 9-11-01 by accident and dented
the compressor and radiator...it has
been to the shop for this accident ZERO
times! I recently ran over a concrete
barrier avoiding a crossing SUV...ZERO
The sound of the doors closing is still
solid as the day we bought it. I had
to replace the thermostat at 125K. We
had the water pump go out at 40K and it
was replaced under warranty. Brakes
were replaced around 115K.
Great vehicle that is used solely as a
daily commuter for a round trip of 40
miles...and still gets ~29mpg!!!
Durability, reliability, lights
automatically turn off, cant lock the
doors with keys in ignition.
