Great Value -- Good Fun
AC leaks, have been recharging it myself every summer since 1998. AC is weak even when fully charged.
Replaced factory radio at 100k.
Replaced headliner at 140k.
New Paint/Decals at 160k.
Good performance value. The 3.0 is lively even at 165k, and still gets 28-30MPG highway. Easily hits top end on the speedometer -- 130MPH. Have always run it on 87 octane.
Switched to Valvoline Maxlife at 125k, which seems to have cured a minor oil drip.
Have never replaced anything, except for routine maintenance. Original drive train, including clutch at 165k.
Cabin fairly noisy at highway speed.
I bought this car for a song and a dance at 16 -- money well spent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
