The resale value given to this car is a few thousand dollars less than what it should be
Brake pads, shoes, & wheel cylinders needed replacing/rebuilding.
Drive axle, and 2 front wheel hubs also needed replacing.
Shocks, struts, coil springs, & sway bar had to be replaced.
Rear main oil seal is leaking a bit.
I was expecting to have to do some work to the car. I knew the owner was not properly maintaining the vehicle.
For how small the car is on the outside, the interior has more room and cargo space than anything else I've seen.
I like this model so much, this is the 3rd Citation I've had out of the 4 cars I've ever owned.
After installing quality suspension parts, and good tires, this car handles extremely well. Steering can be done with a single fingertip, and it grips the corners as good as any sports car, which is impressive in that this is a 4 door compact/mid-size family car.
The carburetted 2.8L V6, for its mileage runs very smooth, accelerates well, and has more than enough power than what I need for hauling heavy equipment. Aside from the oil seal, there are no engine problems whatsoever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
