This is by far the best car that I have ever owned - the reliability is superb, the economy is excellent and the design is fantastic. The car is comfortable and all instrumentation is easy to reach and use. We bought this car new 5 years ago and have experienced no mechanical problems - it is made to go a lot of miles cheaply, plus it is very fun to drive. The handling is comparable to more expensive cars, which provides a lot of satisfaction. It almost seems like nothing on this car will ever break. Insurance is also inexpensive. Highly recommended - mine is not for sale, but you can find another used one.

A compartment under the engine must be opened and shut every time the oil filter is changed - the door to this has been dragging on numerous occasions after oil changes and I've had to go back to the shop to have it re- fastened; eventually, I just removed this plastic moulding that isn't functional.
