Have had the vehicle only a few months, it has 145,000 miles and still looks and runs like new. Only problem is head liner is starting to fall.
After having driven hundreds of cars in 40 years, this is my favorite, hands down. Bought it 5 years ago with 30k miles, now I have 140k and it still hasn't given me a reason to sell it. A few things I had to do early on and they were expensive; head gasket and oil pan gasket replaced, water pump replaced, and about $2k into the transmission. Everything else has been sensor related. 29+ mpg at 70mpg! unbelievable turning radius, quiet and really comfortable. The best city car you can drive.
2nd owner. Only 4 problems we have had, replacing head lamp bulbs, noise in front wheel
area, possible brake,idle arm, or tie rod (going to get it checked), headliner came down in rear of vehicle (could have been last summer when my children decided to use it to do lawn work and leaving a can of gasoline in the trunk, I believe the vapors caused it.
The biggest problem is hiding the keys from my 21 year old and his 18 year old twin brothers.
