Very fun to drive. Wish they upped the HP in 2001 instead of 2002, but 175 is still pretty peppy. I regularly get 30pmg at highway speeds.
Torque on the V6
Transmission melted at 80,000 miles. Fuel injectors died and cost $700 each to replace. This is a cheap car to drive but an expensive car to repair. Very expensive. Tires run about $200 per piece and wear out quickly. I have 108,000 miles now. Body is perfect and so is interior.
