ReviewReview after 7 years at 82k miles
The car drives and looks like almost new. Jut a bit worse stability (perhaps needs alignment) and the engine a bit louder. The mileage depends on external factors and is a bit worse, perhaps because of computer reprogramming; same trip can be 38 or 46 mpg.
Review at 70k miles
The car looks and drives like new with minimal maintenance. Replaced battery at 60k miles, fixed real brakes and one glow plug at 70k miles. Would be perfect if a) less road noise on poor surfaces and b) better fuel economy when colder (< 70F) especially under short runs, a clear sign of emission controls.
No problems in 36k+ miles. Drives like glued to a road. Great city acceleration or when lights turn green, and pretty good on interstates when downshifted.
Mileage depends on the number and frequency of stops: 32-40 in town, 45-52 on secondary roads and close to 50 on interstates. All with dynamic driving. Excellent radio and cell bluetooth integration. Large
cargo volume with non-crushing hinges.
Quiet engine except for occasional louder turbocharger heard on quiet surfaces.
