I had a great time driving this car for 3 years and I never had a problem all year long. I also maintained the oil change, seasonal tires, vacuuming and cleaning the interior. My husband drove in the highway both long and short distances. I love the heated sits and the speakers are awesome as you listened to the radio and CD whenever I got stuck in the traffic especially in winter season. I believed that no matter how new and old the car is its the owner who dictates how to keep your car going smoothly and highly functional. Although ABS is on it never seemed to be a problem as the car is 15 years old.
