Bought my 1.8 liter DX sedan used in
1997 and I've driven it 90k miles
since. Only major maintainance issues
were the starter and alternator within
the past year. Currently have 148k
miles and it's been ultra reliable.
Repainting was necessary when the top
layer of paint chipped off in spots
soon after I bought it. Recently engine
noise and vibration has increased.
Looking forward to getting the 2003
Headlights automatically shut off when
driver door is opened.
Low operating cost.
AC still functional...no repairs yet.
Horsepower is only adequate.
Better paint quality.
Made the dealer throw in a full size
More isolation from road bumps.
