A reliable car that sips fuel
Battery: Replaced at about 110,000 miles.
Starter: Replaced at about 110,000 miles.
Other than this, it's just been the normal things like brakes, tires, plugs and wires. Nothing else has gone wrong.
The car handles well around corners and in the wind and rain (Good tires).
I'm 5'10" and there is just enough leg room. All of the controls feel comfortable to me. The interior still looks new, except for the drivers set and floor mat of course.
The car has decent acceleration for in city driving. The power is Adequat for a daily driver.
The ride is good, but will be even better once I replace the struts, strut mounts, engine and suspension bushings.
Overall, I like this car a lot. I would buy another one only for the reliability and good gas mileage (average of 33-35 MPG).
Also, this car doesn't have a limited slip differential, so it's not a really good car if you have lots of snow where you live. It's good enough for flat country, but not hilly.
If you are looking for a reliable car that is good on gas, then look no further then this.
If you want more performance, get a later model or something made for performance. This is not a performance car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
