Purchased As New
I bought one new $9,476 (was a year old) and owned for 7 years. I would have kept it until it fell apart if it weren't for the fact that I eventually had more kids than it could hold. I was very satisfied with having owned this automobile. Overall, the ride was smooth, quiet, and comfortable. I purchased the manual transmission, and learned to drive manual on this very car! Easy shifting, low gear ratio, and smooth acceleration. MPG was consistently 38-40, highway driven the whole time. My only gripe was that there is limited leg room for anyone who is 6' +, but me being only 5' 6"-I was very comfortable and could see out of the car from every angle.
The car was VERY easy to control in all types of weather-I live in Iowa where the winters are very COLD and full of snow and ice! The car ALWAYS started-even when it was 60 below, and I drove through ice storms and heavy snow. It was easy to drive over ice, though being lightweight was a concern-I slid off the rode 3 times in 7 years, going about 25-35 mph and the car saw me safely to the side of road instead of into oncoming traffic. In deep snow and ice (6" +), it was like trying to roller-blade in the sand. Only 1 tire spins, but with consistent acceleration, I got through the snow and sometimes just glided over the top of it. I got stuck very few times-and only ever in my own driveway. The car EASILY rocked out of the snow, and could be pushed by 1 adult-very light weight.
I went to the same place to have oil changes and tune-ups-which are essential to maintaining any vehicle. The only repairs/replacements I ever had to have included regular interval tire changes and rotation $125 for 2 tires (about every 25-30,000 miles), an air-flow sensor $145 (at 100,000 miles), replaced brakes $120 (120,000 miles), alternator and serpentine belt $265 (129,000 miles), and before I traded it-the tire rods needed to be replaced $100-150 (136,000 miles).
I traded it in, and as it was-got $3,600 for it. The body was still in EXCELLENT condition and I think I got a fair trade-bought a 2007 Ford Freestar. I was very happy with it-I just needed more room for kids and car seats! This would be a GREAT car for a single person, or a couple-but if you have kids, your time is limited. I easily fit 2 full-size car seats in the back seat, but having the fumble with the front seats and lean over or crawl over them to get to the back is not fun. Space is limited, but that is expected with a smaller car. I was satisfied with the trunk space-we took many trips and could pack everything we needed. Again, as the family grew-so did our need for space and car seats.
This is a GREAT car for the price!...read morehide
