Just plain cool
Emergency brake didn't work.
Needed brake pads.
Some minor surface rust.
Electric choke is a peace of crap! It just doesn't like to idol until it warms up.
It handles really, really well! I was driving it home and couldn't believe how well it took my steering input, even with manual steering.
Cruise control is cool, but I'd rather drive myself.
For a 4-banger (I'm use to V8s with over 400 horsepower) it's fairly quick. The engine has a nice sound.
The interior is cool, with a little work and polish and some better speakers it'll be a nice place to spend a few hours in on a road trip.
The bed is great for hauling car parts and stuff, camping (it came with a camper cover), and just general use.
I wish it had a little more storage space behind the rear seats, but other than it's great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
