A great bargain that runs reliably for many years and miles
I replaced the clutch once at 105K.
I replaced the AC clutch once at 110K.
I replaced the radiator once at 175K.
I rate it a great car overall -- the engine and transmission still work great.
The electrical system has had a few little quirks since the beginning.
This car has turned out to be great value.
After the first 30K miles it seemed like a poor quality vehicle, as there were problems with the electrical system and brakes.
But now that I've driven it 185,000 miles with very few repairs I have changed my opinion. It's been very reliable, never stranding me, and it's still running great. There's no rust on the body, and the interior has held up very well.
It's been a great value over the long term.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
