A good reliable runabout.

Car purchased in 2008 - a reliable runabout. Only encountered one problem so far - head gasket failure at 40,000 miles last year (2016).
If you can find a good one - go for it, but be aware of the head gasket problems and find a mechanic who knows these cars: I was recommended to mine by a friend.
Used as a runabout - weekly trip to the supermarket and short trips: only used on a longer trip once since I bought it (Birmingham and back, say 200 miles).
Runs well, economical, but be aware these cars are now over 12 years old, so don't expect current standards.
