This car was happiest in the highway cruising all day at 120 kilometres an hour! It was responsive and handled very well the whole 10 years I owned it.
I would often get comments on the car and different passengers could not believe the car was the age it was and the kilometers it had on it.
I absolutely loved the car and driving it and it broke me heart when I could no longer keep spending money on it to keep driving it.
The 195 60 R14 tires standard on it were well matched to the car. The only thing I noticed having worn out several sets of tires, was the sensitivity of the car to a tire that wasn't exactly weighted the same. The car would pull one way or another until I put the tire on the back. Then it was fine. Cross rotating the tires on the front was recommended by my mechanic, but when I did, the car simply pulled the other way. Only solution was to put the culprit tire on the back or purchase a new set for the front.
