"I bought this one at 160,000 mi, and have put another 60,000 on it. I spent a total of about $4500 in repairs in those 60,000 - but the car drives so well I definitely recommed it: $1200 due to lack of proper maintenance by the previous owner, $800 due to an extreme winter for Seattle, and about $2500 of my own doing/normal issues. The ONLY draw backs are a few design issues that require longer labor times in repair: Tune up and new coils are expensive: EGR"

"I have owned this car for almost 5 years and it is great. I have driven this car from Tucson to Phoenix (about 100-120 miles) almost everything other weekend for the last 4 years as well as to and from work. I drive it regularly, often, and I drive it hard. This car has never broken down or stopped working on me. I have had some normal mechanical issues (belts, brakes, hoses, battery, etc), but this car has never once broken down. Maintenance has been pricey at times. When I replaced the brakes for example it cost me around 650 dollars. It has a powerful engine and makes driving fun even after 15 years. I try to take care of it by addressing mechanical issues right away. Fuel economy is reasonable for an older 3.0 liter engine. About 24-27 freeway and 20 city."

"Racked up the 234,000 miles myself. Still a very reliable, fun car. Great on gas, never had any problems with the 5-speed manual transmission, never had to add oil between oil changes, and has a lot of get up and go. Had trouble with CD player in the beginning while still under warranty and dealership replaced it without any problem."

"I've had this car for 15 years and all I did was change the oil and do routine maintenance. That's it. It looks great, it's fast, and I haven't made a payment on it in 12 years. Pretty hard to beat that."
