We've put more than 62,000 miles on this car since buying it slightly used (with about 12,500 miles on it)in 1998. It's been very reliable, requiring no major repairs so far. It runs smoothly and gets good mileage on long road trips with cruise control activated. No turbo, so acceleration is leisurely, unless you remember to put the auto transmission into "sport" mode.
Very comfortable seats, good A/C, side-impact airbags (never used them).
