"I have missed an oil change or two, which did nothing to it. I have driven over inches of packed snow. It did nothing to this car. I almost never rotated the tires correctly, and even at its advanced mileage I only recently started giving it synthetic oil changes. Doing great. It fixes itself. You can hear the engine fixing itself whenever it sounds a little "off" at first. Mechanics think I take good care of it, but I do basic maintenance and that's all. It takes good care of itself. I took one point off "quality" because it has had a few recalls. Regular rotate and balance, oil changes, air filter changes, and fuel injection cleanings will help this car. My car was vandalized once and I cried over and over because that is its only flaw. Try waxing it if you live in a bad area."

"A solid performer and fun to drive! Dependable transportation when you need it and, doesn't cost you a fortune in upkeep, repair or gas. Do your homework on the vehicle then, take a risk buying one and let the car speak for itself. Buying a used vehicle is always gamble but, far less with this model. That's my opinion."

"A great buy for the money. Extremely reliable, 32 mpg mixed driving, Handles ok, good visibility, flexible loading - will carry a lot of stuff with rear seat down. No unexpected maintenance issues except CV joints started to make noise at 130K and were replaced. Typically would expect them to last over 150K-200K"
