Excellent vehicle. This car has NEVER left me stranded. It almost did twice though. Once was when the alternator failed and the battery died. I have a 30 mile commute and on my way home, it died 2 blocks from my house. The other time was when a spark plug blew through the head. It ran like crap but I was able to drive it to the shop for a repair ($3500!). Other than that, paint is still in great shape - if I wax it, it looks brand new. It runs excellent, doesn't burn oil, never leaked ANY fluids, passes smog with flying colors. The only 2 other things that have failed and I decided not to get them fixed is: 1. The rear wiper motor and 2. The ABS module failed. The rear wiper motor is around $400 ($300 in parts, $100 in labor) and that's more than I want to spend on that. And the ABS module is $1000 which is way more than I want to spend on it. I figure, why bother? That's more than half way to what a dealer would take for it ($2500 trade-in). I'd rather keep it, and save myself $25000 or so. It's still my daily driver as of today.
