Summary:

Good solid, reliable car

Faults:

The rear chrome bumper is starting to really rust a lot.

The clear coat of paint on the roof, hood, and trunk has all faded off. The paint has started to "orange-peel"

New V-Belts

Transmission mounts at 60,000km

Air conditioning needed to be rebuilt when I purchased it.

General Comments:

Interior is cozy and comfortable; definitely a long-distance driver.

Good "get-up-and-go" with solid shifts.

Can be hard on gas.
