Great, worry free car. Picked it up with low mileage, and put this car through EVERYTHING.
Snow, rain, ice, hail, mountain driving, 1000 mile round trips, you name it, it didn't even faze this car. Oil changes were irregular, but always synthetic. Drove it reasonably for about the first 50,000 miles, then proceeded to flog it mercilessly until it was put out of commission at around 130k miles (not the car's fault).
Modified it slightly with cat-back exhaust, cold air intake, 17" wheels with low profile tires, and iridium plugs around 40k miles. Performance was good for what it was.
Was in 3 accidents, drove away from all three. Rear ended by 04 Mustang Cobra at 70k miles, spun into snowy ditch at 100k miles (drove out), and finally finished by a truck's bed full of fence parts emptying on the car at high speed, after which I drove it 10 miles home with fence post speared through the radiator. Only reason I don't still drive it is my insurance company deemed it totaled (only needed a new radiator to drive).
Never once took it to a garage for anything outside routine maintenance and cosmetic repairs (accidents). Zero mechanical repairs.
Sipped gas, I estimated between 35-40mpg on some trips (both pre and post modification).
Absolutely a blast to drive. Quick, responsive, and predictable in all driving conditions; was honestly much easier to manage than my AWD in heavy snow.
I wholeheartedly recommend this car to anyone looking for a fun, safe, worry-free commuter. You won't regret it.
