Have alot of fun driving it to and from work on highway it does whatever I put it up to for a Hyundai it got alot of power one day on the highway going to work a bmw went pass me and I got on it just a lil bit and she to right off no problem I love it looking to buy another one for my wife she also like driving it great car good power and good gas mileage.
At 171k I decided to change my timing belt and filter FOR THE FIRST TIME! Both were in remarkably good shape! Did my first tune up at the same time. Even driving in the mountains and with the electrodes on the spark plugs completely burned off I was still averaging 22.7 MPG. Had a radiator flush at 100k and it still looks and smells fine, as does the oil and tranny fluid. I bought this car new and would definitely buy another!
This week my 2003 will see its 260,000 mile, and I will say goodbye to it after 11 years of loving this thing. I'm a big tall guy and never felt cramped driving this car. In its first few years it had acceleration that rocked. And even today as I drove it to the wash, I am amazed how smooth it runs, with very little maintenance over the years. The few problems I've had were it seems to get misaligned quicker than normal, and last year my AC finally went completely out. But it's the best car I've ever owned
smooth ride, reliability and very comfortable
The main thing Id improve is the access to the headlights, but that's true of most cars these days. When one of my headlights goes out I always have to take it to a auto shop because my hand is too big to reach the bulb.
