Unexciting, but nice
Struts replaced just before I bought it.
Radiator cracked just after I bought it.
ABS light is on.
Needed a used car to get me by for a few months, then hopefully pass on to my daughter as her 1st car.
The previous owner had it about 7 years, and seems to have cared for it meticulously. Old receipts in the glove box indicated some emissions devices were replaced a couple years ago. He said there was a lot of noise in the front end, so he had the struts replaced just a few days before I bought it.
It's so quiet and rides wonderfully. It idles so quietly you think the engine died. Coldest A/C I've ever had.
My only complaint is that it doesn't have a lot of power. Climbing up hills and getting on the interstate takes a bit of patience, but once you reach cruising speed it floats.
The radiator cracked just a few weeks after I acquired the car, but it looked like it was the original, so 15 years isn't bad. A new one was only $100 and easy to install.
Since I've only had the car a little over a month, time will tell as to its overall reliability. But this seems like a nice little car. A coworker has the same model and year with over 240k; she says it just keeps going. Hope we have the same luck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
