Very solid and reliable, and fun to drive
Replaced clutch, master cylinder, slave cylinder and throw out bearing when purchased.
Blower motor started getting erratic at 150,00 miles. for some reason it works well in below freezing weather, but hardly at all above freezing.
Instrument panel lights are out in the electronic readout section.
Replaced all motor mounts, upper and lower.
Repaired power windows all around the car, due to part age and wear.
Repaired burned wire at fuel pump.
This car was slightly neglected, but for its age I would say well kept.
Once tuned it runs great! I drive it every day with no problems.
The manual shift is fun and quick.
It cruises very well.
Body and interior are in great shape.
I maintain my car with a 900 manual and what I can get off the world wide web, it is a simple car to keep up once you get over the sticker shock of some replacement parts. I shop the salvage yards and when I do find one I strip it of all the goodies.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
