Summary:

Great deal, but I would go for a newer one!

Faults:

At 150,000 miles I had the engine rewired.

At 203,000 miles my radiator blew up in a drive-thru. Cost me about $200 to fix with used parts.

Right now it needs a new axle, but other than the mechanic says its in great shape.

It has this luxury feature of vibrating and making loud baning noises (of course that could be the hammer the mechanic left under the hood.)

General Comments:

It is about ready for the dump I think. Great car if you take good care of it (unlike me)!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
