Great car. Comfy, fast, reliable
Rear brakes needed replacing right away (50 bucks CDN for shoes, wheel cylinders, brake fluid and cleaner)
I bought this car for $200 Canadian as an in-between car when my S10's clutch packed it in. Now, if it wasn't for 1.18/L gas prices, I'd never sell it.
Starts every single time (I work for a newspaper and a reliable car is a MUST, this car has not let me down)
I moved with this car to a town 300kms away, made the trip numerous times without a hiccup... feels VERY solid at 160+ km/h.
Not bad gas mileage on the hwy, but definitely nothing to envy in town.
If gas was still below, say, 90 cents/L I'd keep this car. The A/C still blows cold, the body is in great shape, power windows/locks work, engine is smooth and quiet, no leaks, tranny shifts smooth, have no complaints whatsoever besides the gas mileage that's expected of a 3.8L V6.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
