On to the good things about the car.
The previous owner took good care of the car for the amount of miles it has. The A/C works, but not as cold as it could be.
The car has good acceleration, doesn't hesitate to take off. The motor is mouse like, even though it idles rough.
The car handles well and sticks to the road without the tires screaming for mercy. It's more quick than fast, and I have no trouble keeping up with the flow of traffic. I rarely use sport mode, I guess to preserve the car, since it already has a high red line.
Now the bad.
When I took it to someone about the idle, they said the car was missing. Even though I know about cars, I couldn't tell the car was missing. He pulled the plug wires off one at a time and found a dead cylinder close to the distributor.
That's not all folks. You can hear a ticking sound coming from the cylinder. Told it could be a burnt valve, plug or injector gone bad. A burnt valve would lower my gas mileage to the point where the car is undriveable, it would hesitate, loss of power. I have none of these symptoms, but the rough idle. No check engine light; only for the EGR code. The only time the car stalls is when the wheel is turned all the way and the car is first started.
The back seat could be a little bigger. I've been a victim of the seat belt strangler. But they are helpful, but dangerous.
Also, how much gas does this car hold. Some say it holds 13 gallons, but mine holds 10. A half a tank really shows 3-4 gallons left.
I like the seats, but wish they were power operated.
I've had numerous headaches from hitting my head getting in and out the car. The engine bay is cramped, and must be worked on from underneath from what I've heard.
Even though the car has a few problems, it seems to me that they are common problems with any car. I don't regret buying it, and I hope to get my $1500 worth. Some say I paid too much for the car. What do you think about it?
Final words. Just go get one. You'll fall in love with it.
