Middle of the road sedan; perfect for an economy car

The timing belt needs to be replaced every 40-60,000 miles in order to ensure the engine does not die, the PCV system needs to be replaced around the same interval as well. These two repairs are very expensive, especially if you have to do them at the same time. The performance is exceptional, especially considering the small size of the engine and decent fuel economy. It handles (steering) quite well too, and there is very minimal road noise even at highway speeds. It is quite a comfortable vehicle to ride in, however the maintenance expenses and me choosing to use premium gas makes cost of ownership higher than I would like.
