Summary:

High performance sleeper

Faults:

I fixed the electrical switch for the power mirrors, as well as fixing the driver's side window motor. My father is a mechanic, so it was very easy and cheap to fix. I bought the car for $700.00.

General Comments:

The car is quick, and the gear shifts are smooth. I wish it had manual transmision, but automatic works good. I don't like the way it eats up fuel, but it's very strong.

When, my sister took it to a mechanic to fix a recent coolant leak, he messed up the engine, so my father and I are going to clean up the whole engine and I'm thinking of making modifications such as adding a 400W 6-speaker system as well as Nitrous system of about 140HP increase.

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