A great purchase for beginner drivers


The rear window defroster didn't quite work. It took about an hour for the effect I was looking for to appear. The brights aren't much different from the dim lights. There aren't any ashtrays in the back for smoking passengers.

General Comments:

It's a good car. It's reliable and I honestly believe it's a better buy than my previous car, the 1987 Pontiac Bonneville.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
