I bought this car used at just under 100k miles. Unfortunately I was in an accident after two years, but despite the damage done to my car, the interior frame remained intact and did what it was supposed to do: save my life. I literally walked away with one bruise. I'm thankful and can attest to the safety of this vehicle.
Other than that, I really loved owning this car. It was my plan to drive this car into the ground. In the two years I owned it, the only "issues" I experienced were needing new tires and brakes (inevitable) and strangely, one time during the winter, my windows (except for my drivers side) stopped working. I was in college though so I put off fixing that until I had more money set aside, then when the weather warmed back up a few months later, the issue resolved itself. I'm not sure what caused it or if that's common, but even so it wouldn't have been very expensive to repair.
My favorite thing about this car was the folding split seats because the backs of them were covered by hard plastic, making it very easy to load things in and out. Even the mpg was good, I think I averaged about 26-28mpg, sometimes even averaging 30 mpg.
I don't think there's anything really bad I can say about this car. The only things I would change are the radio (I installed a bluetooth/aux radio) and the roof rack (might be an issue since it doesn't span the whole length of the roof).
I'm considering buying this car again, but I'd like to try owning something different for a while just for a change of scenery honestly.
