It is a workhorse. That gets you point to point economically.
Great gas mileage, maintenance reasonable. I think the suspension could be better and the vehicle noise in the car cabin less for highway driving. Seats are not the most comfortable. But the ce is the base model. I have 75000 miles on the car and the paint on the top of the car is showing significant wear. I do live in the south and get direct sunlight and the car is not stored in a garage. It is also 13 years old. So some of this is simply age of the vehicle. This year my air conditioning has died on the car. Again, this is the most common repair on cars the age of mine as my mechanic tells me. My regular maintenance is tune ups, alignment and brake care. I know that I'll need to do the cv joints in the near future. Again, a function of age and mileage. I am a low mileage driver and newer cars are made to handle higher mileage per year. In general a very good car. Handles well, easy to drive. My complaints are not that the mechanics of the car do not work well. They'd be because I have the base model and I'd recommend you get the le version or another upgraded version to have better comfort seats, quieter car cabin.
