"i have owned the car for a year and its awesome so far at 165k miles. the vr6 is the only way to go. way more reliable and has more power, although you feel it in the mpg about 24 city and highway average. problems so far consist mainly of coil packs. also i have had a couple of problems with door locks, but other than that its been a very good car."

"Bought with 107,000 now at 125,00 and have sunk $2000+ in repairs and now needs a new transmission and same problems come back. Nobody will work on these cars and the parts are twice as expensive than most cars. Do buy it!"

Pros: "Fantastic fuel mileage, fun to drive, reliable"

Cons: "Cheap plastic pieces all break and need replacing"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought this car new in October of 2000. It now has 195,000 miles on it and is still going strong. Trip to Oregon and back a couple weeks ago netted exactly 52 MPG at somewhat aggressive freeway speeds (manual). The only issue I have is that I need to get a new car for carrying capacity reasons and just can't seem to give this car up. It will be going on to one of my sons, so it will at least be staying in the family. I fully expect that it could go another 200K miles."

Pros: "Sporty but with 52 mpg."

Cons: "Dealer servicing is pricey, but 3rd party shops ok"

"I think this might be my favorite car ever. The only reason I'm selling is that I need an automatic (Carpal Tunnel makes shifting difficult). It gets a consistent 52 mpg and is a hoot to drive. The diesel has lots of torque which translates into a great highway driver. I am buying another one with an automatic."
