"Good, reliable car with very good gas mileage. Inexpensive to have repaired because it was a very popular car in its time and a lot of parts are still around."

"This car has been reliable and never given me any trouble, I am the 2nd owner. I feel so lucky to have this car, I never feel nervous to take it anywhere even with 240,000 miles. It has had regular oil changes and service maintenance since I've owned it and there are records from the previous owner with the same care. Thank you for making a car so dependable and convenient. Love the hatchback."
