Long Lasting Car

this car has outperformed any other car I have owned while still taking a lot of hits. It has been reliably getting me where I need to go for many years and still runs 15 years later

4.4

Hard core Honda owner... converted.

It's a reliable, peppy japanesešŸŽŽ car. Except, This one has a CanadianšŸ VIN. Seriously, I have fallen in love with this car. It's not a Lamborghini. It's utilitarian enough to be usable for a Home Depot run, but once you're behind the wheel, this car begs to be driven like a small sports car.

5.0

Happy with her. Never need another car !

It is a little work horse. She does everything I need to get done . I am going to keep as long as I can.
