"I first bought this car a few months old with only 6,000 miles on it. Now it is 10 years old and has 190,000 miles! I have somewhere near $1000 in replacements in it. It got me through my late teens, early 20s, work and college commutes. The barrings in the front have both needed replacement at separate occasions. Both even at the dealership not breaking the budget. The rear breaks had to be overhauled. all just in its later years. Parts are relatively inexpensive and mechanics are easy. It still gets up and goes and has always been reliable. With all the miles put on it I did take very good care of this vehicle in maintaining it. It's older but still gets great gas mileage(over 20miles/gallon) and overall performance is amazing. It's time for a bigger vehicle due to growing family. It will be missed. I agree that it is probably not being made anymore because of its longevity."
