| ||General comments?||I've posted here before, a few months after I purchased this car in July 1999. I was pleased with it then and am more pleased with it to this day. The car handles extremely well at all speeds. The gas mileage is good, which allowed me to survive the skyrocketing oil prices in 2000 relatively unscathed. Also, the car's power and acceleration is better that that of its mid-size competitors in 1999. I'm not sure if this is still true for the 2002 models and would be curious to know. Best of all, the car's reliability has been exceptional. Nothing other than routine maintenance. I still have the same complaints as in the beginning. The rear seat leg room is atrocious. But I drive the car so what do I care? Small things such as cup holder placement, storage, etc. are less to be desired. But these are all things I knew when I bought the car so I can't really gripe that theuy came as a surprise. I'm leaving this review now because of the car's reliability. Minimal $$$ on upkeep and fuel, that's always a plus in my book.|
