1981 Chevrolet Citation 2.5 liter 4 cylinder. from North America
Tough winter car
Since I have owned the car I have replaced brake lines and welded the frame. Except for damage cause by time the car is in good shape.
I think my Citation is the best winter car you can buy. It isn't very fast, but with a standard transmission and front wheel drive it goes through just about anything. I bought the car to use as a winter beater and it has not let me down. For cheap reliable winter transportation I would highly recommend this car. It always starts (after a few tries) and the heat works really well too!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm glad to hear that you've gotten really good luck on your Citation, I think that the Citation and its front wheel drive siblings (Buick Skylark, Pontiac Phoenix and Oldsmobile Omega) are under-appreciated cars and they deserve greater respect than what they get, you don't see a lot of Citation's with the standard transmission at all, it's a pleasure hearing owners say good things about their Citation or its sibling, I'm a big fan of the early 80's X-body cars.
