General Comments:

I bought this car for about 1900.00 so I simply wanted a reliable work car. The car's engine has proved to be more than adequate and I change the oil every 3K. The light transmission leak I was told was going to cost 500.00 and I got a few estimates that were the same. I was finally got an estimate for 300.00 to just change the seals and that proved to be more than adequate. I use this car a lot and in 8 months have put over 20,000 miles on it. It has been very reliable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
