I wanted a new car that I could reasonably expect would be economical (good mpg) & reliable (no problems). After 17 months of ownership & 15,550 miles my cumulative gas mileage is 42.7 mpg. I've not had ANY mechanical or electrical problems with the auto. I've taken it in for the 5K, 10K, & 15K routine maintenance & that is it.
42.7 mpg; 38 degree cold air; 185 degree hot air; center dashboard location of instrument cluster; cruise control (a feature that I thought I'd never use, & now find I use it every day); electric power steering instead of the old hydraulic system; electric door lock
Vinyl floor mats instead of the carpets. Carpets are difficult to keep clean & show wear. Vinyl covering on seats instead of upholstery (longer wearing & doesn't show wear)
