    We got it really cheap a few years ago. My husband is a mechanic, so he keeps it in top notch shape. My favorite part of the vehicle is the fact that we can go 100+ miles with $15 worth of gas in the tank (which is usually less than 3-4 gallons).

    Only thing I do not like is the ugly green/olive color. It looks more tan in my opinion. But the registration says it is green. But, the color is something you can change with enough money...

    It's been a while since I've been on here, huh? I had a baby, so I had to do mommy things. ;)
    I have higher paying freelancing jobs now though. So, I have a little more free time then I previously had.

    Well that is 25-33 mpg. Good for a big car. It is listed to do 18 mpg combined. 23 highway. A Ford Focus of the same year is listed to get 25+ mpg combined. 30 mph highway.

    If your looking for fuel mileage, there are many other cars to look at.

    Hmm it works out worse than my 2.0 focus in that case haha.

    They are pretty cool cars though, I know of onlyone nearby me thats been imported straight from new york as a taxi... a bit odd to pull up next to one at the petrol station.
