I bought this car as a former rental - it had less than 20K km and was only 6 months old. I can honestly say that I had low expectations, having been an "import guy", I thought I'd have the car for a year or so then trade it in (the initial price was fantastic). Having had it now for more than 8 years I can easily say that this has been the most reliable, trouble-free, comfortable car that we have ever had. Aside from the one (airbag) recall, regular servicing has been all it's needed. One sets of brakes, one set of tires is ALL it has ever needed. All the bulbs are original! Quite amazing as it now has nearly 160K km of somewhat heavy driving. There are some things that are not all that great - the kind of numb steering, the fact that you have to slowly open the trunk when its raining or you'll dump water onto whatever... but you know, it gets great gas mileage, the stereo system sounds fine, it doesn't look awful... you get the picture, I'm very happy with my former rental car, purchased at a steep discount.
