"I bought after Consumer Reports highly rated in 2002. After 47,000 miles, I still love the car. I have only had one recall for rear fender and a recent notice for sunroof and battery area drainage. I have a five speed. The car is very fun to drive and looks great. New tires recently but the brakes are original. One major repair ($2000) included front seal - with water pump and timing belts - and a thermostat. Other than the rear window washer always popping off the car has been great. No electrical problems."
