"I bought this car used in 2008. I drove it hard for 6 years. It has had some repairs, mostly electrical. It gets pretty decent mileage for its size. It is pretty roomy and nice to have the option of putting seats down to transport longer items. However, when they get up in miles, the timing belt has a tendency to snap and destroy the engine. This has not happened in my case, but I know of two others it happened to recently."

Great car!

"This little car has been in my family for almost 10 years now. I think we bought it one or two years old. It was first my dad's, then I shared it with him when I learned to drive, then my brother learned to drive in it and shared it with my father for several years, and now it belongs to me and my husband. We have had very few problems with it. We were getting worried earlier this year when it started to feel like there was a problem with the transmission but we changed out spark plugs, spark plug wires, and cam position sensor (all done on own) and now it drives like new again. It has survived a tornado, several hail storms, and minor accidents (speeding on ice is not a good idea). The body is pretty darn beat up now but it still drives like a champ and has always been a commuter vehicle. The seats are comfortable, even in the back with two full grown kids. I road a 2,000 mile road trip in it and slept most the way. Great car for beginners and for families. I'm looking forward to passing this vehicle on when my family has out grown it."
