I've owned this car for 11 years. One of the best I've driven. Car is now at 350K and yes, maint is expensive, but worth it. Oil changes every 3 months and i would suggest owners budget atleast $1200 a year for maintenance. Besides oil changes & tuneups - Issues: ABS module - approx $300 to fix. Heater core - @250K - approx $800 Window switch - approx $200 Rear antenna - approx $100

I purchased this car used for not a lot of money, but I feel that it's worth much more than I paid. This is the car I wanted to own when I was 16 years old, but it didn't exist then and the cost was unthinkable. It's going to be with me for 10 years since I don't drive it that much. Most people don't know what it is or even notice it. When I take friends for a ride in it, they tell me it's the most solid and luxurious car they've ever ridden in. Too bad most of the used ones are badly beaten up, it took me 3 months to find a low-miles garaged one to buy. I'm optimistic the 5 cylinder motor is going to be durable. A lot of the ones out there have 150,000 miles+ and are still running.
