"Let me first start off by saying that this car saved me from any injury when someone slammed into the back of it at highway speeds (I was stopped in traffic). I have to sadly replace it because the insurance passed it off as a total loss, but it drove wonderfully for me in the time that I had it! I used it for daily commute and an every other week 300 mile round-trip, and it was great with gas. My only major problem with it was that the fuel injector and transmission had quite a few problems that required fixing, but that was mostly due to the previous owner and not the car itself. I highly recommend this as an affordable car and/or your first car!"

"I'd just like to start by saying I have been impressed with the performance of this car. I have owned it for 5 years now, and I have no intentions of trading it in or selling it. In 5 years I have done nothing to it but normal maintenance, and although I take care of my vehicle, I was not "easy" on it. It has driven through 6-8 inches of un-plowed snow quite a few times with EASE!. I call my car a "TANK". I have driven about 3 trips over 5 hours each way in the last 2 years, and it just keeps right on going. They only thing that I'd prefer to be different is that it were a manual instead of an automatic, but that just my personal opinion. This is the first vehicle I have owned that was not a manual, so I had my doubts about it's capabilities. I rest easy now. Great car for a small family or just for the lone ranger like me."

"Great running and repair experience. Have had two small fender benders, not repaired, Get oil change every 3000 to 3500 miles, do any other needed repairs. Bought this 2005 in 2007, have driven it for 44 000 miles. One bad feature---front windows do not open any more. I fixed one, at a cost of nearly three hundred dollars, then the other window quit opening a week later. PLASTIC CLIPS HOLDING THE GLASS NOT CONDUCIVE TO FLORIDA ATMOSHERE. Also, glossy finish on rally red paint color is fading out on both front and back bumpers. Looks tacky. Thanks. It is becoming difficult to afford repairs, such as, repainting, new tires , etc. May need to sell."

Pros: "The mileage is great, reliable and runs smooth"

Cons: "Trunk to backseat area small, no driver armrest"

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

"Drives easy, no drag on hills due to higher torque, smooth running, great MPG [25 in town/30-35 on the road]. The inside is a little snug, and trunk room is small, but for two people traveling, it's a good ride. I'd keep it but I have to have more room for my family."

"Bought mine on the cheap. Been very reliable. Needs some routine maintenance (struts, clutch, couple other little things), as it is near 150k miles, but once I complete those, it should last me atleast another 100k miles. Fairs pretty well with Indiana weather. Only a few small areas of rust, though they could have been avoided with proper maintenance. Common one being the bottom of the front quarter panels, and another being the front edge of the rear wheel wells."

"This is the first new car I ever bought, and I picked a really good one! It has been extremely reliable. This car didn't need any big repairs for 10 years. I didn't even need breaks until then, of course the mileage is low, so maybe that's why. For the first 9 years I drove it to work every day but that was only about 2 miles which is why the mileage is so low, however it was all city driving as was pretty much everywhere else I went. When I moved to the county the mpg improved. The hatch compartment is quite large, I moved everything but furniture in the back of this car. I plan on keeping this vehicle as long as possible because I doubt I could find a better one for the money."
