 Unless it's been substantially abused or in a serious accident you can't go wrong with a 240. Mine went 375,000 miles until I traded it in. Shoulda kept it. They're essentially bulletproof and usually only require routine maintenance to keep them going. The case can be made for them being underpowered but that's a plus as far as I'm concerned. Wagon or not? That depends on how you plan to use the car. You could also say that gas mileage isn't the best for a four-cylinder car. That's minor too. Source(s):

 hobbabob
pros:
1 comfortable on long trips, piratical for short ones
2 reasonable gas mileage
3 if kept up these will last for ever.
4 these are pretty easy to maintain yourself [if so inclined] 5 sort of timeless styling that still looks good even today
6 these cars are safe if seat belts are worn properly. they crash well leaving the passenger cabin fairly intact, even in a head on crash. 7 these cars seem somewhat invisible to police when at speed. cons.

1 these are slow [in stock form]
2 handling, well the factory did not intend for these to be entered in auto-cross events.

fortunately these two cons can be remedied [the people at ipd usa are very helpful]. * 3 years ago
