"I bought mine used for $1200. It is a '98 4 cylinder with a 5 speed. I have replaced only items which wear out: brakes once, alternator, water pump, wipers, timing, and accessories belts. The water pump was still good at 125,000, but since my shop was replacing the belts, I had the pump replaced. I do this with all my vehicles at about this mileage This is a superb vehicle. 30-33 mpg, pleasant to drive, and mine has been very reliable. I love it."
