I got this car when I was a junior in high school, now I'm about to be a junior in college- nearly 4 years later and it's still going strong. It only had 116K miles on it when I bought it for $1,200 in 2007. Other than a wheel alignment I got recently, I haven't had to put any money towards repairing my car. I've taken it on moderately long trips with absolutely no trouble and not once has it left me stranded. My brother, a mechanic, recently looked it over and took it for a drive and said I have no reason to replace it as it will last me for many more years. Definitely not the most attractive car for a teenage girl, but it was $1,200 well spent, I'd say I've gotten my money's worth :)
This vehicle really surprised me The overall performance was beyond my expectation, also the spacious back seat area. Major maintenance: radiator. Now there is an oil leak and the transmission is dragging.
