"This was a fabulous vehicle and I say it saved my life. The safety system did its job when impacted head-on 60 mph vs. 30 mph by a DUI. The safety harness held me in place, air bags deployed, and driver area did not collapse and remained in tact. Car was totalled though. During its short 3 year life, it was fully reliable and never had any mechanical, electrical or engine problems. It was perfect -- not too big that it was a nuisance, but not too small that it was a death trap. It was ideal for road trips. shopping, and school. It had great standard safety features, excellent visibility, got reasonable mileage, rode comfortably, very maneuverable, and had a decent sound system. It was stylish and I believe it will be hard to replace as I got such a great deal on it to begin with. But mostly, I will miss my car."
"I picked this car up to test drive with 200 miles on it and I didnt wanna take it back to the lot. The dealership let me keep it over the weekend and I put 400 miles on it checking it out I was there monday morning to sign the papers. Other than oil changes and general maintance it has been in the shop once for an air conditioning problem that costed 100$ to fix. I hope it doesnt but if the car quits today at 156k miles I have gotten my $ worth and would probably just fix it and keep right on going with it"

"this is a fantastic vehicle. I have 1, been in 2 accidents (not my fault) and the other vehicles that hit me lost. this car drives and runs like a dream. I replaced the stereo because it went out, added a few things and wow. Sound does not escape well so I am deaf! Keeping the maintenance up on this car will keep it around for 200K+ miles. When this car dies I am going to get another one. I might do so before it comes close. Cars need to last as long as these do. Most just don't last over 100K miles."
"I have had this vehicle for 4 years and I love it! The handling is awesome. My kids love it and it's great because it allows me to carry all 5 kids. There is not a lot of room for the third seat, but it suits it's purpose when we need it. The price was perfect, but since then, they have gone up quite a bit. It is definitely one of the best made vehicles i have ever driven in 25 years."
