"This is a really nice car to drive and own. I have owned it for a year and a half and the only thing I have had to do to it was put on new tires, other than that it has been very reliable, starts right away every time, runs great, has great pickup for a V-6, rides nice, better than a Volkswagen Jetta which was my one of my previously owned vehicles, has good gauges; temp, oil pressure, battery, fuel and a tachometer. The only drawback to this car is the back seat is very small for an adult, I haven't put anybody in it, I don't know if an adult could even fit in it or not, it is quite tight. A large size adult could definitely not fit in it.
The engine and drivetrain are quite tight and haven't loosened up at all in the year and a half that I have driven it, which is one thing I love about this car, it must be built out of some quality metal. Also the body doesn't rattle at all, which is another thing I love about this car.
I am getting a little tired of shifting it though, which is one reason why I am thinking about getting a different car with an automatic transmission. I do a lot of city driving though, which is why it is tiresome. On the bright side though, it is kind of fun some of the time.
When I first got this car, the tires were almost worn out and the first winter, I got stuck all the time. After I put new Goodyear tires on it the next winter, the difference was awesome, I could drive anywhere a front wheel drive car could go, I rarely got stuck, only once in about 6 inches of snow. With the old tires I would get stuck in 2 inches of snow. And the new ones are not even snow tires!
The seat is very comfortable so long drives are enjoyable and there is adequate legroom and I am 6'0" and the cruise control is nice.
The stereo is nice too, with adequate bass, and it has a 6 CD changer, so you can load plenty of music in it. Also it has 6 speakers with two at dash level on the doors which is nice, with two at foot level in the doors, with two in the rear panels."
