I recommend this car to anyone on a tight budget
Paint flakes badly.
Gas cap rusted off.
Passenger seat belt.
Starter (more than once)
I have had my problems with this car, but than again, it is 14 years old. Considering the age it is extremely reliable. It is a plain car that will get you where you are going cheap, and with little trouble. Many people claim you can't kill this car, and they may be right. I push mine hard, and it has always held up.
There is very little pickup, yet the car handles fine if you bury the needle, will not overheat eaisly, and it can move when you want it to.
One point I must mention is that is a great car in the snow, or on dirt roads. I live in Eastern Canada and with the high clearance under the car, bad weather poses little difficulty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
