Pros: "good gas mileage, reliable"

Cons: "needs more trunk space"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"The only problem we had is when someone rear-ended us, and the vehicle's whole trunk wound up in the back seat. Unless you get in an accident- the car is wonderful. It's reliable, very good on gas, controls all different roads (dirt, paved, and gravel). And is easy to work on."

"This car rides well and hasn't had problems. It still gets really good mpg. Everyone asks me if I got a new car when it rains or gets washed, the finish is perfect. I hope it lasts forever."

"Very low maintenance costs; new starter & battery only expense above oil change, etc. Quite comfortable for a midsize car; have taken it cross country on two occasions. Has good acceleration. Compared to my 2008 Ford F250 with V10 it's like driving a sports car."

Pros: "Cheap and has plenty of space"

Cons: "Not exciting to drive and not great on gas either"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Owned an '05 for four years now and put almost 50,000 miles on it. I work as a delivery driver and it has never once left me stranded. There is massive trunk space and my 6'4 frame fits comfortably into the drivers seat (or even the back, which i've only ridden in once). This was my first car and while it's basic and boring, does what any first car should do; get me from point A to B without problem. I have no regrets in my purchase."

"Nothing special, but it works and continues to work. Spacious for 5 adults, or multiple teenagers. Great size trunk. Good winter car. Not very good gas mileage. I recommend the car for anyone who wants a car to get you from here to there safely and comfortably."

Not ever again!

"I bought this car for my mom june 12th 2011. When it was purchased, it was immaculate, only had 93,000 miles on it. When we first bought it, it was fine. After 2 weeks, it had to go into the shop, in and out of the shop twice a month. It has cost way more then this car is even WORTH to keep the piece of junk running...I will never buy another one and if you do, I cant help you."
