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


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
