This car has been extremely reliable ever since purchasing it last year. Only maintenance has been regular oil changes every 3,000 miles. I probably should have performed the 60,000 mile tune-up, but didn't want to pay what the dealership wanted for the procedure. Gas mileage hovers around 28 and would like it to be a little better, but it is quite reasonable for a larger 4 cylinder. Best mileage was in the high 30s, but that was on a cross country trip.
Exterior is holding up nicely, as long as I take time for the occasional wash and wax. The ride is comfortable and reasonably soft. Body lean can be a bit pronounced at times, but is still reasonable. Interior noise is moderate to low, depending on the driving surface. Interior fit and finish is very good and has stayed looking great, partly due to my frequent vacuuming and spot treatment.
Overall this car is a great everyday car that will double as economical cross country transportation. I recently drove from Missouri to California and had no problems throughout my 2,200 mile trip. I highly recommend this car as a everyday use car that rewards the driver with reliability and efficiency.
