    100k club!

    I swear it runs better than when I first bought it now with my upgrades and all.
    Doesn't burn a drop of oil.
    Can easily get over 30mpg freeway when I want to.
    A few headlights, rear door actuator, and o2 sensor have been the only fix its.
    Great little car.

    Done and Done. It would take double what the car is worth though at this point to find something comparable.

    ^^^ true story. I have the same experience as the OP and just rolled 195K today. Still getting 31+ highway MPG, A/C still working like it should, no rust, and most importantly no oil burning problems even with my 5,000 mi. intervals. My only complaint at this point is the paint not holding up to the Florida sun, but few cars really do.
