"I bought this new, not one dollar, not one cent have I spent on this vehicle except the price of the trans fluid. On the 07 the first ever made the trans was supposed to be the problem, no problem, and there is a drain plug at the bottom so break the safety tab on the dip stick and you can do this yourself. I have changed it every 30,000 just to make sure, this vehicle will go another 100 k easy. They power is still great and remember I live in the hot dusty desert. The fan is starting to make a little noise and the CD player did stop working but for the price, I am going to get another one in the next few months. I am not sure about this 1.6 but I am sold on the 1.8 at 30-35 mpg. Had to replace the back quarter panel as I backed into someone, $800, compared to $2,400 bmw, $2,400 Honda Civic, $1,800 Honda Fit, and $3,800 Prius you don't want to know about the rest. This was at a shop with matched paint. Let's face it we are Americans and will change out vehicle every 5-10 if you even have it that long, I can't understand why this is not the highest rated car in KBB as you settle for $35,000 with payments of $380 a month or a little less thrills, maybe a little more hp, but for gas millage with a five peace drum set that fits in here great, this vehicle has got me to the price of the vehicle just in gigs. It was a little tight with two adults and a child seat but how many times will this happen. If you have seven kids get a van, but don't expect the millage, reliability, over all operating costs, or 166,000 problem free. Thanks hope this helps you can't beet the over all cost per millage if you take care of this vehicle, all maintenance. Oh did I mention 70,000 Michelin tires at WM out the door for under $300. Order on line and have them install."
