Very reliable as a starter car, I got this to go to college. It had 77k on it when I received it. Now it has around 81k after two years.
I did, however, run into a couple problems. One was the check engine light, and the other was the alternator dying on me. The engine was free as it was well within the 30-day guarantee, but the alternator was $200 and self-repaired.
Since mine had a starter on it, I cannot use it if I park the car in the winter for more than a few days, otherwise it would start then quit. I live in Michigan, and temperatures can go down to -8 F. Driving is great and very comfortable. Very fuel efficient as I fill up every month, despite driving 4 days a week to school.
Power windows, engine, fuel-efficiency.
Interior door design, car grill should be silver instead of paint over it which peeled after a year of harsh weather.
