EX with 5-speed manual transmission
My wife's aunt purchased new. She sold it to wife's sister and her husband at 100,000 miles. While they owned it, it suffered extensive hail damage. Prior to the insurance adjuster coming, the water pump went out and the engine overheated and seized up. They bought it from the insurance company for $1750 for us. It had 130,000 miles. I put a used engine in it during Spring break while I was in nursing school in 2011. It now has almost 248,000 miles. I have hit 3 deer and an Opossum with it. I am sick of it. I have never owned a car for 7 years. I would give it away but it is so incredibly reliable and easy on gas.
