We bought this car new in 2001 and almost 9 years and 93K miles later it is still running perfectly. Zero problems. Routine oil and filter changes, new tires and new brake pads are all it's had. Don't expect a sports car or a luxury car. We bought it for high quality, reliable low-cost basic transportation and it has delivered and then some. Wonderful little car.
Roomy interior (my 6'3" son fits comfortably in the back seat) and trunk, 34-42 mpg, comfortable and easy to drive. Rock solid reliable
Wish it had standard side curtain airbags and ABS brakes. Needs cruise control as an option also.
