I have owned this car since purchased new in August of 2000. I love driving the car, handling is crisp. I have got over 30 mpg on several occasions. It is so comfortable to drive and ride in, the seats are perfect for almost every body type. I had the same transmission problem that people mention on this website.
Seats, handling, stereo system, turbo and horsepower, reliability, great gas mileage, absolutely no rust after 92,000 miles. I always used Mobil 1 synthetic. These 5 cylinder engines are bullet proof! Never an engine problem. I just plain love this car!
