Best car I ever bought!
A/C never worked.
Head gasket blew at 200,000 miles.
Had to tighten the emergency brake a few times.
Spare had dry rotted away when I needed it (my fault).
This was the best car I ever owned! Bought it for $1200, and it got me through college and multiple road trips. I never had any problems with this car (other than A/C didn't work) until the head gasket blew at 200,000 miles. At this point I was done with school and bought a newer model (which was no where near as good as this one!).
This car is super good on gas, easy to drive and 100% reliable.
I totally agree with the person who said it handles like a go kart. I still see them on the road occasionally, and wish I could hop in for a drive.
A great choice for a cheap, reliable car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
