Fun to beat, cheap and slow
Needed new brakes, tires, and the check engine light still plays games.
Something is wrong causing an extremely low idle and stalling when the air conditioning is on.
Tire blowout nearly killed me but I suppose that isn't related to the car as much as my thin wallet.
I bought this car to replace my 1988 Chevrolet Beretta GT which was broadsided by an evil woman.
I can't seem to get rid of this car due to it's ultra-strong reliability, gas mileage, not to mention the hatchback sounds great with the subwoofer <grin>.
This car is slow, slow, slow... UNLESS you know how to drive. I have a 5 speed and if you rev that engine to its limits you can go. When I first got the car going up a 12% grade over two miles I eventually fell to 37 MPH. Now I can manage the hill at 55 or so if I get a good running start and let it wind out in third.
I suppose it's a good car for someone like me living in the city, can't afford much. Parking is a breeze :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
