Little car with a big heart
Seatbelt buckles started to fail. Quick fix done on manufacturer's recall, but not really satisfactory.
Seat covers wore out after about 11 years.
Some rust, but not serious. I could have dealt with the small spots as soon as I noticed them, but didn't. Now they are large and unsightly.
This is an amazingly reliable car.
The only serious repair it has required is a replacement oil pan that I punctured by driving where I shouldn't have.
Otherwise, only routine maintenance.
LOTS of leg room, front and back.
Lots of visibility.
Very nimble, tight turning circle, parks in places you wouldn't believe.
Headrests on four seats make this a safer small car than most vehicles of this vintage.
Back seats fold down flat giving an incredible amount of luggage/cargo space.
I will drive this car into the ground!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
