I absolutely loved this car when I got it new. I drove it with 115,000 miles with no problems. Then the 1st transmission died (manual). At 146,000 miles the second one died and I am ready to retire it. I still love the car but its not so much fun without the 2, 3 and 5th gears!
This car is fun to drive. It looks great and has a comfortable interior. It has good pick up and got me where I needed to go for almost 10 years.
Transmission, transmission, transmission. Oh, and bigger cup holders!
