This car has been wrecked, and the alternator is going bad. Other than that, it is a champ!

General Comments:

I would recommend this car to anyone, as it has been the most reliable car I have ever owned.

Only one major breakdown, due to the ORIGINAL clutch finally giving out, and it is a racer at heart.

This car has an official top speed of 110 MPH, but I have been clocked at 125.5 MPH, and have the ticket to prove it, LOL.

Summary:

A inexpensive fuel efficient car

Faults:

The seats in the car have started to wear down very quickly.

The engine burns a little oil.

The paint has chipped off the hood and on the roof.

Back hatch has leaked in the past, but is now holding well.

General Comments:

This car is incredibly easy to shift.

The clutch has been in for well over 20,000 miles and is still going good.

The gas effiecency is awesome for this car, I am getting 35 miles to the gallon.

It has a bunch of extra room even though it is such a small car.
