As a car guy I never thought I would buy a normal commuter car,
but this car rocks,
I bought it at 150,000 last year and have put 50k on it so far,
at about 190,000 the original shocks finally gave out.
for what it is (4cyl manual trans) its actually quite peppy,
handles well enough to not be boring,
and still gets 31mpg combined city / highway,
and only uses about 1/2 quart of oil between oil changes.
the only problems I have had with it are the prior mentioned shocks,
and the actuator that selects where the air should go inside the car has stopped working.
I will run this thing until the wheels fall off then buy another one,
hopefully a convertible.
manual transmission, manual transmission, manual transmission.....
Love that stick shift! lol
tuck the exhaust pipe up under the car better,
it scrapes on everything....
