I can't believe how reliable this car is

ReviewI now have 85k on this car. I change the oil every 3-5k miles and change the antifreeze and air filter at the recommended intervals. That's it. Changed the brakes (pads only) at 60,000 miles. That's right, original rotors. I had to change my last GM's at 20k because they warped (under-designed). Kuhmo tires only cost $68 and I put 50k+ on my last set vs the original tires without much change in performance or ride quality. This is a great car and the 28-30 mpg couple with low maintenance costs makes it very economical. And oh yeah... it's fun. Nimble and sporty.
Best FeaturesHandling, head and leg room. I'm 6'2 and comfortably drive this car 20k per year. Fold down rear seat make it great for carrying cargo. I've picked up stuff for home improvements and packed it with stuff to go camping. Best of all, its sporty.
Worst FeaturesWouldn't change a thing.
