Maintenance is key to vehicle longevity.

My vehicle is over 10 years old with over 260k miles on the original engine. No major work has needed to be done. I have just maintained the vehicle as it should be and it has treated me well. It has only given me one major problem when commuting during the over 100k miles I put on it which was due to a worn alternator. That is not even a major item. Maintenance is the key factor to prolong the life of a vehicle. Even something as simple as rotating tires can prolong the life of the tires and cause they to wear evenly and properly.

My pride and joy. Good ride and good mileage for gas without the trouble.

I get about 32 miles per gallon fast quiet very safe. It holds 5 passengers. It has a sunroof top. Leather seats hatchet back with cover over trunk. Have had problems with exhaust in the pass. It is reliability. Do not wear out tires clean motor. Seats are removable to add more room for storage. It is easy to handle. Easy to park in small places. It do not show dirt to bad. I have had this car for ten years and I brought it used it is still in good condition. Air condition works good and heat also. I have really enjoyed this car.

- L S

Not the quickest but reliable.

I have owned my vehicle for over five years and have put over 150, 000 miles on it. I bought it used with around 110, 000 miles and currently have 260, 000 miles on it. I always perform the needed maintenance and have never had to have to perform any major repairs. The reliability is amazing and is a more simple model compared to others which is a benefit. My commute is about 100 miles round trip as opposed to short driving. It has a manual transmission which is reliable and simple. It is not the quickest but is good on gas.
