I got mine used in 2012 with about 45k on it. Last year I crossed 100k miles. A few months after I got it, a cab rear-ended me in downtown Nashville; I needed a new bumper, but he needed a new cab. More recently, I was driving down a highway in IL when some deer ran across the road. I had nowhere to go, so I slowed down, but I couldn't avoid the last one. The front end took some damage; I drove it for a week before I could get it to the shop. $3500 dollars later, it's back to a more normal appearance (insurance covered most of it). So, from a safety standpoint, I feel pretty good about this vehicle. I have had a couple of minor issues -- the tire sensor went out a long time ago. The fuel gauge works intermittently, so I have to watch the trip meter. And there is some problem with a battery cable -- somewhere; if the battery holder is loose, the battery doesn't charge. But I pushed the battery back, tightened the clamp, and I haven't had any more problems -- but I am still wondering what happened. It's the only reason I consider buying another car (I don't like getting stranded for any reason).
Worst car ever owned
Have had the same items replace several times over the past 8 years. Poor gas mileage, not reliable. Expensive repairs lead to dissatisfaction. The past 8 years spent about 15K in repairs...could have bought new car. Now having same issue for the third time.
LOVE this car
I absolutely loved this car. It was a great first car and kept me feeling safe up in the air. It was the perfect car for a young driver and served many purposes.
