We bought this car while on a trip because it was cheaper than a rental car. We drove it on vacation, then drove it 1400 miles home. A mechanical inspection showed that we had warped rotors, but that was it. We have put an additional 60000 miles on the car and it is still the most comfortable traveling car we own. Purchase price was $1100 US, all repairs in almost 4 years is about $1200 US. It will be difficult to let this car go, and it will never die.
Dependability, comfort, nice quiet ride.
Those cup holders in the arm rest are almost useless. The rear seat armrest can get stuck in the trunk area. There should be a bracket to prevent the armrest from going past flush.
