This car has relatively low horsepower, but high torque and it accelerates very well. Not only that, but it gets amazing fuel economy. I can get 30 miles per gallon out of this car on the highway while driving 75 mph.
It has a limited slip differential and is not bad in the snow with a good set of snow tires.
In the summer months I put 195/60 R14 directional sport tires on it and it still handles amazingly well. It's truly a fun car to drive.
I had it painted 5 years ago because the original paint was fading and it looks new. People can't believe it's an 84.
I hardly do anything maintenance wise to this car except regular oil changes, timing belt etc.
I've seen people on Internet forums with the same car with over 300,000 miles and they report that they still work great. Looking forward to keeping this car until it dies, if it ever dies.
