Been So Good to Me!
Cons: cosmetic damage (my fault!)I bought this car used going into my sophomore year of college and five years, 80,000 miles later I have no complaints. Aside from the standard maintenance it has never asked anything from me. Runs well, has good pickup, and big enough to fit everything I need (people, snowboards, you name it). It's time to move on now, but I'll admit it's been tough to find a car with the functionality and adaptibility to stack up.
