This car looks bland and boring on the outside, but when you drive it, you realize you cannot judge a book by its cover. It is even reliable and has a smooth ride, along with an engine that delivers great performance and eats a little amount of gas. I bought this car for $1300 with maintenance records stating that a new engine was put in because of bad gaskets. Luckily for me this car has been fabulous for me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

This review is awesome! $1300 and you get 170,000 miles out of it?
You are the king of frugal zealots my friend!

Life's too short to be a "frugal zealot", let alone their king!

This sounds like the absolute perfect car to own if you work in a refinery, steel mill, inner city lot, etc where you worry about owning a new car. Having parking dings or paint issues and loss from a heavy industry factory parking lot. I have seen cars in these places with pitted windshields and bad paint loss. Why people drive new expensive models to me doesn't make sense in those specific cases.

Nothing could be further from the truth!
To spend as little money as possible on something that doesn't matter all that much is the smarter way to go.
You don't care about cars? This is the perfect car. Go learn French, or botany, or go skinny dipping in a lake with an attractive member of the sex that appeals to you.
Going from boring point A to boring point B doesn't require a divestment. This guy is doing it right.
