Extremely fuel economical and trust worthy vehicle


No major fault. Only routine maintenance for wear and tear.

Required 3 paint jobs.

Body rusts pretty soon.

General Comments:

Extremely fuel economical and trust worthy vehicle. Been with me for 24 straight years, and still going string. Needed just one engine overhaul in 22 years.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
