Excellent little car


The front sway bar mounts rusted out of the body. My brother had a minor accident because of this.

This was fixed with relative ease though.

The engine finally blew up, after about three years.

The body rusted out.

General Comments:

There was a relatively huge amount of space in both the front and the rear of the vehicle.

It drove well and gave fairly good economy.

This was my first car and I was very sad to see it pass away, in the way it did.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
