The transmission was terrible till 85K then it seemed to straighten out(go figure) at 105K it needed a rear wheel bearing and hub. Otherwise we do regular maint, 50/50 syn blend as recommended, every 5-6K. We are on its second set of tires. The car still gets 35mpg.
The car is terrible in the snow, a combo of fwd and wide tires, these cars should be awd. MJEFF
Throw some snow tires on there, it'll be a huge help. Plus the stock all seasons suck in winter.

Good to see the gearbox is holding up.
