Bought this car in January 2006. Love it and still do, plan to hold onto if for a few more years. Other than a few recalls, which the dealership was great about, only standard maintenance required. Fun to drive and comfortable.
The open space behind the radio. It is a very comfortable ride and love the design. Also, nice trunk for a car its size.
City driving isn't easy on the gas tank (or the wallet). The t-tech cloth seats aren't as easy to clean as purported - leaves watermarks (so takes some time to get them clean).
