This car is awesome, I will never ever get rid of it.
Of course, there was the routine maintenance, but there were a few things I had to replace, such as the bushings up front, but that was completely my fault. A lot of things dry rotted because she sat for so long in my garage.
I replaced the alternator, battery, radiator, all hoses, and a few bulbs here and there.
This car has always been good to me. Never left me stranded, or stuck.
Surprisingly awesome in the snow and such. Nice healthy amount of ground clearance, so there is no fear of driving it through the grass/fields/dirt at around 10-15 mph. I actually hill climbed it (carefully) a few times around where I live. She was sure footed, much like a mountain goat.
An all around great car. Not to mention, very, very good on gas. I fill up maybe once every two weeks, and I drive everywhere.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
