This vehicle is awesome, I have driven it almost 60,000 miles and have had very few problems. I have had gas mileage up to 30 mpg, but average 20 mpg. I now live in Germany and this car is a blast to drive on the Autobahn. The only problem I have had was recent and that was the water pump going out. It wasn't bad to replace.
I love the speed and handling. Replace the struts with coilovers and this car will turn on a dime. It has great torque off the line.
Change the struts, sway bar, chip (GIAC+) and you have a powerhouse that handles like a panther.
