We purchased this car new in '98 and
besides regular maint. and a $1 muffler
repair (no joking, a bolt came loose)
this car has been problem free. Not bad
for over a car with more than 100K
miles. The ride is comfortable and
handling in the winter is much better
than I expected. I also like the fact
there are *no* rattles or squeeks.
I don't think you can do better for a
inexpensive small car.
Nice cabin layout, good storage, decent
sized trunk, comfortable seats, quiet
ride, no timing belt to replace. Great
Body style just so so. Cupholders a bit
annoying. Both door mirrors have a few
ripples that distort the image a little.
