I love this car


Paint faded.

Exhaust rusted off.

Vinyl roof is cracked.

Bumpers are rusty.

No wheel covers.

Defroster does not work (but that's no big deal here in Long Beach).

Air conditioner quit.

I had to replace the battery more than 5 times.

General Comments:

I LOVE this ride; it is very comfortable and reliable, and gets me and my family around. Great!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
