No mods and I'm terrible at maintenance. I pay about $1000 every other year on maintenance, usually get get rid of the check engine light. Love the car. I'm going to keep it as long as it keeps going. I can't find another car with all the features this has. Manual is the way to go. Even as a used car I would recommend. Quite reliable.
Speed. Heated seats. Cargo space. Sound system. Dash lights. Sunroof. Heater and A/C are great. Reliable.
