"THE BAD: Constant hesitation problem for an entire year. After bringing my car to, literally, countless mechanics could not find the issue as to why my car hesitated. (The cold and humidity is when it hesitated, mainly.) My only other complaint is that a lot of little things broke over the years: fuses, rear defroster, emergency brake, over-head light, etc. THE GOOD: The car has AMAZING gas mileage! Probably the most fun car I've ever driven! Driver-connection with the road, (something my NEW car lacks!) Very comfortable! Very stylish! Easy to figure out all the features! I'm going to miss this car. I just sold it to help me with a trade-in value to buy a new car. So many happy memories with this car!"

205000 miles and still hanging in there!

Will it make it to 300K?

"My first car purchase in December of 2001 for $16000 (13000 out of pocket). It has a deluxe trim including a 6 disk rear mounted cd player, power windows, and power moon-roof. I've one had 2 issues that were not normal maintenance. At 40,000 miles a PCV valve was replaced at the dealer ($200). At 67,000 the transmission was rebuilt $1600. (I think I was scammed because the car was still doing the same thing after the work was done. It's on it's 3rd battery, 2nd alternator, 3rd set of tires, 2nd serpentine belt, 2nd water pump, 3rd set of brake pads, 2nd set of light bulbs, 2nd oil cover, 2nd temperature gauge, 2nd set of sparks plugs and wires, and 2nd starter. The air compressor and CD Player died at 170,000, the moon-roof quit at 200,000 and at 205,000 the power windows are going. The driver's seat and visor cloth is peeling due to wear. I truly have gotten my money's worth. After 13 years it needs to be replaced. I've test drove many cars and none, not even the new ones compare. If it seated 5 I would buy another with lower mileage."

"Had this car for around 40,000 miles and it wasn't bad. It's got some power for a little 2.0 liter and handles pretty well. The only thing we had to do with this car while we had it was replace the belt tension-er which was a pain to say the lest. not much room to work on things in this car. got around 32 mpg on high way with the ac off. kinda cheesy cheap interior on the base model anyways."

this car currently ave. 37 mpg !!!!
