Summary:

Got it for $1625 with minor bumps and with a little investment it's working great and looking better

Faults:

Had to replace the water pump this year

Had to adjust the transmission, 3rd. gear was making funny noises.

Had to give maintenance to the starter.

General Comments:

This car almost runs with water. It has better gas mileage than my previous car (an 86 Chevrolet Sprint with a 1000cc engine).

Third car I owned, best one yet.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
