I can't really say something has gone wrong with this car. It has always been in superb condition. But there's one thing in it that usually doesn't last: velocity bearing.

Its turn radius is poor like a station wagon. And the acceleration, having a uni-chassis from a Maxima and a 8-valve carb-fed engine, it is sluggish from 1st to 3rd gear. It picks up speed from 4th to 5th gear.

General Comments:

Overall, this car is very dependable and fun to drive. I had this bought by my folks when I was in college, and until now, although I have 2 other newer model cars, I still feel the pride driving it.

Fuel consumption is a little guzzly: 6 KPL city driving and 10 KPL on the highways.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
