"Car is nearly 20 yrs old and is extremely reliable. Aside from minor problems over last few years, car has been fantastic, that after 165,000 miles. Car picks up quick too, giving it a bit of a sports car feel (a little). Love this car, may have an emotional breakdown when I trade it in/sell it."

"We purchased this vehicle 1 year ago and it was a GREAT find. It is getting 43 MPG, and has only had 2 repairs since purchasing it. The seats are a little uncomfortable but not horrible. It has great pick up, and has been very reliable. We will soon be looking for another one but not to replace this one."

"Bought as a used Enterprise vehicle with 13000 miles. Have just recently replaced the harmonic balancer and front wheel bearings. No other expenses. Very reliable. Average mph runs 26 - 30. With winter rated snow tires it is an unbeatable winter 2wd vehicle. On snow or ice it handles like on pavement - no slipping, sliding or getting stuck. Stops great. Absolutely no rust. Used it would make a great, safe car to send your child off to college with - would not break them for gas and you wouldn't have to worry about them when on the road."

"how can i rate my car anything other than all 5's? purchased 3 years old 45k miles now it has 252k miles yes there's been alot of repairs the last 2 years but that's to be expected with 252k miles. first trans lasted 192k, got it rebuilt for $1700 now 60k on the rebuild. just replaced the radiator, idle control valve, starter and battery. most amazing thing is the timing belt i think was supposed to be changed 4 times? i still have the original. when i bought this car it was beautiful, looked brand new, sunroof, gorgeous alloy wheels, stunning white, paint actually still looks great today. premium stereo. yea its not the same car it was 11 years ago, but what a run we've had."
