I love this car. It's got almost 500,000 miles and still going strong! I wouldn't trade this car for anything. Runs like new. A+ car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow... 500,000 miles huh? Mine has about 120,000 on the body with a rebuilt motor with only about 5000! Looks like I will have this car for a while... I just have to fix it up now...
"500,000 miles and still going strong!"
- You're joking, of course.
One does see a lot of these cars about with 250-300,000 miles on them. I find it pretty believable that the 3800 would last 500,000 if the oil were changed occasionally (pre 1994 version only of course).
It is rare nowadays that you can find them though - rust having taken its toll. They're only uni-body cars, so they aren't as durable as the older full-sized car.
