1988 Dodge Colt LX from North America
Fun and cheap ride
Had to replace belts, hoses, and filters. Standard things like that. Redid some wiring.
Great first car. Great on gas, 4 doors makes it easy to get a few friends around with, and the stick shift is just plain fun to drive. Nice field of view. Is also easy to handle and park.
If something goes wrong you can basically fix it yourself as the engine isn't rocket science.
The only bad thing I have to say is about the wiring, you can't tie anything directly to the frame that is electronic.
I would definitely recommend this to any first time driver, it may not look all that cool, but if you plan on learning how to drive, you will probably get a few dents and dings so why not do it to a car that can handle it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
