Cons: "electrical issues"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Bought this car used 6 years back at 115,000 mi. These cars are great to by used because of their "re sale" value. Got mine very inexpensive. The car has its weird electrical glitches and problems but I have never had a major mechanical issue that would sideline the car. I average 31mpg and the car has good pick up. Mine is a 5 speed manual and is a lot of fun."

"Great, safe, reliable, responsive car. Well built. Solid. Decent mpg. Get this rather than the 9-3 in the same year. Change oil every 5000 miles with synthetic oil, and be sure to change serpentine belt every 60,000 miles, and you're good to go. Have crankshaft position sensor replaced on time, too. Other than that, we've had zero problems."
