"This car has been very reliable. It's needed very few repairs and I've owned it for four and a half years. I drove it from Vermont to North Carolina and back just last year and had no problems at all. This car also handles pretty good in the snow, and if you add studded snow tires, it does really good in all weather. It also gets good gas mileage and is reasonable on the insurance. It is a little bit out of date so if you are looking for all the fancy options you can get with a new car, keep on looking. If you want a reliable car that isn't too hard on the pocket book, this is it! Also, it's really comfortable to drive. I always say it's like driving a couch."
