Reliable, economical transportation
At 175000 I needed to rebuild the 1-2 cluster in the transmission. Cost $550.
It used to really eat through brakes until the most recent new pads at 250k. Weird that they have lasted so long, since.
The seats are seriously wrecked.
Somewhat noisy from road noise at rear wheels.
Super low cost of ownership. avg 40MPG at 80mph. Make a weekly commute from San Francisco to Los Angeles (800 miles RT).
Compression still in great shape.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
