Old and Slow, but cheap to run, reliable, and PAID FOR!
A/C very weak and needs a recharge.
Fuel Gauge reads incorrectly, reads too low and won't go to "F" after a fill-up. Better safe than sorry I guess.
Repalced water pump a year ago.
Haven't had many problems with this car.
Paint is starting to fade on hood, trunk, and roof.
Replaced clutch 2 years ago.
Will need exhaust work soon.
For $1000 I know I got my money's worth. The noisy old 4-banger never fails to start. Tires are cheap, insurance is cheap, parts aren't too bad if I need them. I use cheap oil and 87 octane gas and get anywhewre from 25 to 35 MPG, not bad for a 23 year old hooptie. The car rides very smooth and handles and corners well. I would not be afraid to drive it cross country.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
