A Great Car at a Cheap Price
Cloth ceiling fell down.
Starter went out around 175,000 miles.
Had to replace front brakes at 180,000 miles.
Had to replace plastic headlight covers because the plastic deteriorated from clear into yellow tinted and cloudy.
Replaced front ball joints around 170,000 miles.
Trunk leaks water.
I love this car! The V-6 with the manual transmission is really fast. It has plenty of spare power.
The turning radius is terrible, and the steering isn't very crisp.
This car handles amazingly well in snow. I've never come even close to slidding into the ditch.
The seats are some of the most comfortable seats ever put into an automobile. After hours of driving, I've never felt uncomfortably stiff. Surprising for such a cheap car.
This car has never left me stranded anywhere. Within the last year, the only thing that I had to have repaired was the front brakes.
The V-6 engine really kicks the car around especially with the manual transmission. The first driving impression gives that of a 1980's pick up truck, but once you get used to the clutch it is one of the most fun cars to drive.
I've driven many cars including SAABS, Fords, Buicks, and Oldsmobiles, and my car is the most fun to drive.
This car is great on gas. I get anywhere from 25-30 mpg.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
