Looks can deceive


Had to change air filter a couple times.

Car overheats within 30 minutes of driving.

Has a very rough idle.

Tires had to be changed.

Air doesn't work.

Knocking in engine.

The last time I drove the car, it was shaking and killing on me, so I got fed up, and walked home.

General Comments:

This car seemed appealing to me, it has a sharp muscle car look, but looks deceive, as it had too many problems for me (a teenage guy) to attend to, and I don't have enough money to deal with it.

When I first bought it from the guy, it handled nice, and had very nice power steering, lots of power, but seemed like it was being held back.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
