Exceptional care with limitations
Very little. With minor exceptions. Legroom limitations for the taller than average, both front and rear. Weight capacity is very limited and easily exceeded if you carry four people and cargo.
Superior reliability and dependability. Excellent handling, especially with tire upgrades. Only limiting factor of this car is it really isn't for folks larger than average size. Notable is limited legroom in front for the long legged and none for the rear passenger. 1997 and earlier models use a timing belt, which requires 60,000 mile replacement. Or, you risk severe engine damage. Not well presented in the owners manual. Figure $500 every 60,000 mile for replacement. This car averages 34 miles per gallon in all around driving. Super!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
