Owned since new. Repairs are expensive.
Exhaust is a major drag - replaced three times in 12 years. Motor is good.
Car can take a beating from kids. Sound system never very good. Brakes OK. Good gas mileage - surprising pep from the 2.3L 4-banger. This car did the job it was purchased to do. Driver's leg-room a real drag for tall people! Geez - you'd think the Swedes would get it right.
Improve leg-room. Just put in a decent exhaust system.
