"This has been a great car for $8K. I have used it to haul everything you can imagine, and the size of the cargo area is better than most SUV's. The roof rack has had doors, trunks, Christmas trees and more. Still the best part has been its reliability...it has seldom given me an issue in the 200,000 miles I've put on it since purchase. And it is still going now."

I love my car!

"I bought this car new in 2004 with 3 miles on it. I've driven it across the US multiple times, on mountain roads, country roads, stuffed it full of camping gear, and hitched a trailer to it to move from OR to NM. The little car goes and goes, now with more than 155,000 miles on it! Never had any major issues, going to miss it when we sell it soon because we now need more space than the hatchback can provide. Really fun to drive (5-speed manual), easy to park, cheap to fill up. We've had good times, old friend."

best vehicle!

"This car is the worst car I've ever had. I bought it used in 2013 with 60k miles on it and I thought I was getting a good deal. But EVERYTHING has gone wrong with this car! It could have partially been because it was possibly poorly maintained by the previous owner, but it has been an absolute nightmare! The radio stopped working after about a month, the fuel pump went out within 2 months, the timing belt, serpentine belt, motor mounts, spark plugs, radiator hose, thermostat, and alternator all went out within a year and now the cooling fans are out. When I replaced the alternator it then went out again a little over a year later too. This car has left me stranded 3 times!!! I have done all necessary maintenance on time since owning it, but there is always a new problem to be had. The electrical issues have been the worst problem, it took several mechanics and 2 alternators, pigtail connectors, and a new battery cable harness just to keep it from dying and yet it still has electrical issues. DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!!! I can't stress it enough!"

Shiny like new exterior

"This car has excelled in mileage (27-30mpg) for the size of the car, is the most comfortable car I've ever driven, handles like a sports car, still has the gleaming paint and look of a new car, seats 5, has enormous cargo space, and is just a pleasure to drive."

"In the 3 years that I have owned it I can't fault it. Great on gas, always starts. It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There is room in the back for my dogs and room on the roof for luggage."
