Nice good looking car for its age
All belts to include timing belt replaced.
Water pump, tensioner, and puller replaced.
Secondary radiator replaced.
Above repair costs = $1,000.00.
I purchased this car based on the recommendations and the good ratings on this site. It's a Pearl white and for its age, it looks good; as a matter of fact I park it close to my window just so I can look at it!
I can't blame the problems I've had in these short two months of ownership on the car. As you can see, all the issues are preventative maintenance issues. The previous idiot (owner) trashed this car and didn't take care of it. It runs OK, just a bit sluggish and I'll blame that on a tuneup that it needs. It also still needs front struts, lower control arm bushings (front), and a front driver side seat. Looking at another 1,000.00 dollars and the car will be up to par.
No regrets, pretty happy overall. THE PARTS ARE EXPENSIVE AND SO IS THE LABOR IN THESE SHOPS!!! so be prepared if you're not a mechanic, still, I highly recommend the car!!!
P.S. I paid $600 for it when I originally purchased it, have put in $1,000.00 in repairs. Do the math. I still got a good deal... No dents, paint still good, tranny still works and compression test passed!!! I'll have it for a while my friends.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
