This car had many problems! Here is a list of things I can remember having problems with:
The engine vibrated at 3000 RPM.
The Exhaust manifold gaskets fell apart.
The Car was very noisy with muffler system problems.
The gears all grind when you shift.
The clutch cable broke in traffic one day.
The clutch went out.
The fuel gauge sender went out.
It had numerous electrical problems. For example, when you crossed a railroad track, the wipers came on. The headlights would not always raise. The wiper motor was exceptionally slow.
The alternator went out.
The head gasket blew two times.
The drive shaft linkage stripped one day leaving me on the roadside.
The battery pan leaked badly putting water in the passenger side floorboard.
The door seal leaked putting more water in the passenger side floorboard.
The dashboard cracked.
The clock quit working.
The water pump failed.
I had lots of problems with irregular tire wear even though I bough Pirellis.
The Air conditioning quit working.
It was fun to drive, when it worked. The brakes were very very poor making it a scary ride at speed. I never wanted to sell it, but the amount of things wrong with it exceeded its value.
It was nothing like a Honda or Toyota, it always was unreliable and persnickety.
The handling was great and girls loved it. The best thing I can say about it was that I learned to work on cars while I had that vehicle because I could not afford to have it worked on.
It was a sharp looking car that was constantly broken or plagued with problems.
The car was also underpowered especially off the line. It did feel solid and good at 80 mph though.
