Great reliability for a great price
The passenger side-mirror came off in a collision with an orange traffic barrel and knocked the window off track.
I had to replace the front brake pads at 40000.
I replaced the battery in 2000 and again in 2003.
Just recently, I had lost the bearings in both rear wheels. These are currently in the shop being replaced again, because of the shop's error not a problem with the car.
The air conditioner went out about 6 months after I bought the car, but I was already beyond the mileage for the manufacturers warranty.
The dashboard in my car has faded terribly. However, I did live in Florida and parked outside in the sun on a regular basis.
This car has been great to me.
Overall very reliable and efficient for someone working with a tight budget that needs to get around.
I am only 5'4", so there is plenty of room in this car for me. Anything larger would feel to big. It easily carries everything I need.
It is an ease to drive and for being a little car with no weight, the 4-cylinder engine is more power than it needs. I am grateful for that now, since I have moved to the mountains.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
