It's a great little run about or long trip car
The altinator went out at 120,056 miles.
Other than that Have had no problems with it.
I love my little car. I was unsure when I bought it being a 3 banger and all.
I was surprised when I drove it, it had a lot more pep than I had expected.
Not having power steering is a set back, but you get used to it after a while.
I am a tall guy (6'6) I was surprised at the room inside, I sit down and still have at least 3 inches above my head.
The interior is kind of cheap, but is easy to car for, or customize yourself. I have put custom carpet and door panels in, in a matter of a day.
Easy to do repairs yourself parts are fairly cheap.
The little motor sounds like its banging around under the hood, but with the stereo up you never notice.
For all you stereo buffs like my self it's a great car to drop a system in, I have two 12's in a custom box built my self and it rumbles loader than my friends car that has a $3,000 system in it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
