1990 Chevrolet Sprint 2 door 1.0 3 cylinder from North America
I bought the car from a dealer for 1500 cdn dollars.
At 190,000 km the alternator went.
At 196,000 km the timing belt went.
Had to get it e tested and safetied, at 210,000 km needed a catalytic converter, two new tires.
In cold weather the alternator belt squeals until the car is warmed up.
Passenger side seatbelt latch broke at 224,000.
At a cost of 1500 for the car, and about 1500 worth of repairs I wish I never bought it, but for a car that has 225,000 km on it it is doing better than most.
I haven't had any problems with it since, and the gas mileage is amazing! 20 dollars fills it up and it lasts over a week, and I do a lot of driving.
All in all for a cheap car it works, semi reliable and still looks good, runs well in the rain.
Winds are a problem, as the car is so small and light.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Haha. That's really funny.
All the problems you listed, I have problems with.
I just replaced the timing belt and the alternator. And it still squeaks when the weather begins to get warm.
And I just went to Pick-a-Part and got a new passenger seat belt to get the old one replaced, because it broke.
However, I love driving it. It's good on gas as you say. And it's easy to drive. Also, most things that need replacing are fairly cheap.
