Summary:

Nice car, I like it very much

Faults:

The day I brought this car it had a few problems that were related whit it's age.

The engine supports were worn and I had to replace them.

The tires were worn, I replaced them.

The battery went dead, replaced.

The engine started to have problems with the rpm when I started it, it got fixed for $50.

Eight months later, the trans axle started fail, this failure was very occasional and it looked like it wanted to connect 2 different gears at the same time, I had to repair it, it wasn't very cheap.

After repairing those problems the car is running very well, not a single problem.

General Comments:

Well, I had bad luck with the trans axle, I believe that was the reason why the previous owner sold it.

The engine runs very well, soft and smooth.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
