This is a good car. Some people don't like it because they take it to a dealer to get it fixed which is a big mistake. Over the years I have learned to fix things on it and overall it's a pretty mechanic friendly car. One of the easiest oil changes I have ever done since the oil filter is forward of the pan. I am at 155,000 mi and going strong. I'm going to keep this car with me for decades more since it is safe and has a fairly timeless design. Staying ahead of maintenance is the best defense to problems. Get it checked out unless you know what to look for and you won't be suprised with killer repairs. (70k change the timing belt). They are fairly inexpensive used. Buy one!
Great power at 190 HP. I have driven this car across country twice and after 900 miles a day I did not have soreness in my back. Pretty amazing!
Annoying dash squeak on the right front. I have heard it is the tape that separates the plastic that has worn.
