Still ahead of its time!
Replaced water pump @ 101,000 miles.
They don't make them like this anymore. Compare this compact to current compact cars like the Corolla and Civic, and you will see the great value of the Nova. The Nova offers seating for six adults versus seating for four in the Corolla and Civic. My Nova has the optional 396 cubic inch, 375 HP V8. A V8 (or a six cylinder for that matter) isn't even available as an option in the Corolla or Civic.
Parts for the Nova are cheap and readily available. It has been a reliable, fun to drive vehicle, and is the envy of all my friends who own Japanese cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
