Only scheduled maintenance so far ... one previous owner (1997-2004) kept great records, though. The build quality is its best attribute; before I bought the car, I asked my mechanic what he would want to work on -- what had parts that are easy to get to, etc. He mentioned four or five vehicles, and I continued my research. This was a GREAT buy.
The price -- you get a good car for your money. And the size -- it's fun to be able to fit into the lots marked "compact only." It's a cute little car, especially for the poor college student. The cupholder, while it gets in the way of the ashtray/lighter, is very sturdy for a little plastic thin.
Speakers are wimpy, but you can only ask so much! Also, it would be nice to have an armrest between the front seats.
