It is a reliable car and is comfortable but I have had to put a lot of work into it, replacing old parts, cleaning corroded metal, etc. It is driven me across the country in 150, 000 miles though so clearly it is still performing well. I love the AUX cord feature for playing music over my phone and the seats are comfy.

I have had my car for 4 years and haven't had any problems except to replace the thermostat! It is a comfortable ride and very reliable. It gets good gas mileage and I have the oil changed every 3000 miles or so. I have 126000 miles on it. The only problem is that the gas cover does not close all the way.
