"Purchased in 2006 (14 years old then) with 170,000 miles for $2,000. Still running in 2014 with 260,000 miles. Reliable around town car, great for teenage son getting to school, sports, work and friends, with lots of room for extra stuff (sports equipment) in the back. Still use it for hauling larger stuff from the hardware and garden stores. Engine and transmission running very good, body deteriorating in wheel wells and under door frames. No excessive rattling, vibrating or leaking beyond what you would expect with a car of this age. Average around 28 to 33 mpg in suburb/rural and highway driving."

"This has been a great little car. It starts and runs, and always gets me where I want to go and back. The only repair I've had to make was a new starter; otherwise the only money I've spent on it has been for maintenance items, like oil changes and tires. It still has the original brakes and muffler. The interior is a little cramped, especially compared to today's vehicles, but it's perfect for putting around town or driving back and forth to work. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat!"

"This car is awesome. I bought it in Florida back in 2008 for $1,500 and it is worth more than that now. I plan to drive it until it drops,which won't be anytime soon. Runs great! No rust. Couldn't ask for a better car. Love it."
