Great, fun, and reliable beater
When I got the car (which was free), it had low compression.
Its transmission jumped out of first, and 2nd and 3rd didn't work.
Its trans also leaked gear oil as fast as you could put it in.
I hit a hole, and broke the exhaust and sway bar.
The CV axle started clicking, but never broke.
After 2 1/2 years, the transmission lost 1st gear and the clutch fried.
I just used this car as a yard beater. It lasted through the heck I put it through.
It drove great, and handled really well.
It put up with a 13 year old's abuse and trashing.
I beat on it for 2 1/2 years, and it still runs to this day (though it won't move).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
