I received this car as a family hand me down. It is unquestionably the most well-built reliable car I've ever owned. Maintenance is expensive - especially for big ticket items - but in the 5 years and 45,000 miles I've owned it I've put less than $3000 in repairs into it. It's not fast or flashy and I'd like a cooler looking car but I have a hard time justifying a new car when this one keeps on running strong.
Luxury appointments like leather, moonroof and wood trim.
There are a lot of non-mechanical rattles and clanking noises (dashboard, exhaust hangers). Heated seats often break (but are easy to repair yourself).
