I had this car from 2007 until recently (Sept 2012) when I was involved in a car accident. It gets good gas mileage for a larger car and doesn't require a lot of extra costs. I drove around 18,00 miles a year for work and experienced no issues. We only purchased new tires when needed and oil changes. The week before my accident we had to replace one headlight but that was it as far as repair costs go. It was a safe car as well, it took the damage in the accident, not me! I will miss this car. Overall, yes, I would reccomend this car. Is it fancy? No, but it is reliable, safe, and pretty decent gas milage.

I haven't had any problem with any break down. I have preformed all maintenance required. I have no complaints. I have to sell because I can't drive anymore due to health reasons. The vehicle has never been in an accident no mechanical problem.

Most reliable car I've ever had

I believe most of these cars were either rentals or government fleet vehicles. I believe mine was a rental. At any rate, I have 165,000 miles on it and I put about 40,000 a year on it. I put new brakes on once, wiper motor and new tires. Replaced the serpentine belt as preventative maintenance and that's about it. They are not very fun to drive and handle like a boat after the suspension ages (not something I care about), but it is a great dependable car that is cheap to maintain. I will buy one for each of my kids when they are old enough. UPDATE: Traded the car at 190,000 toward a newer van. I still will get another one when my kids drive. Really miss this car.

Good A to B transportation

This is an A to B car, pure and simple. It does not handle well, it is put together rather cheaply. But it WILL get you from point A to B, relatively comfortably, with low maintenance costs and therefor low cost of ownership. Not much to go wrong with it, unlike a caddy. A lot of plastic, especially in body components. Headlight assembly is terrible. Who ever engineered that should be dragged out in the street and shot. Same for taillight assembly. 2.2L with K&N provides better acceleration, but its slow. Good tires, such as MIchelin Defender, provide marked increase in ride quality and responsiveness. Overall, its a good cheap to own car. Period. Even after owning for 10 years, and a few minor wrecks, it still starts up every morning.
