I bought this used in Sept. 05 with 50K on it and now have over 114K on it. I haven't had a single issue with it. It's not flashy, but with the 5spd it's fairly peppy and fun to drive. Surprisingly roomy and easy riding on the highway. 36/38 mpg in the winter 40/42 in the summer, pretty much all highway miles.
MPG, cheap to run, plenty of space, fairly cheap to buy.
A real handful out in the wind or behind a semi, but I switched to the bigger tire like the LE model and that helped. Paint chips too easy on the front of the hood.
