"I have had this car since high school and it now has 230,000 miles on it. I have never broken down in this car, it is the most dependable car. I have never even really had to put money into this car for repairs, it is seriously awesome and I recommend this car to anyone. The only issue for me is visibility, the shape of the car sometimes makes it hard to see.I plan on adding another 100,000 miles to this car!"
Cons: "paint finish shows age more than Euro cars"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This has been a pleasure for the past ten years. No real problems and plenty of performance. The hybrid is more a performance boost (increased horsepower when accelerating) than a mileage benefit. Very well put together car."
Pros: "good looking, economical and very reliable"
Cons: "performance tires are expensive and don't last"

"Beautiful looking car inside and out. I've put 162,000 miles on this car in 8 years, kept it well-maintained. I have only one minor complaint about the type of tires required on this car. Performance tires are expensive and don't last. I'm on my 4th set."
"I bought this car new with economy in mind....It's blown any other brand I have owned. Now, Nothing man made is perfect, and my 10/10 review is based on component service life.
At 318,400 miles, this car is actually getting better gas mileage than new! I'm doing around 35-36mpg. It's literally just breaking in! Handling is crisp and precise.
I live near the ocean and in a heavily salted area in winter (my environment is harsh). The body in some areas is showing some rust--lightly-- it really should be worse, I'm amazed.
What has gone south: AC compressor replaced at 150k with junkyard (Honda) part. Starter at 310k,replaced with new. Driver side window regulator at 180k. Struts and shocks at 300k. Battery every 5 years. This is just normal wear and tear. Better than normal.
So, my monthly maintenance cost is pennies compared to a new car payment. I'm shooting for 500k. The car is almost 14 years old now and extrapolating a purchase(another 2 vehicles @25k) every 5 years, means I'm $50k(almost) back in my pocket....
I can't say enough."
