The little Tibby that could
The A/C blower control switch becomes so hot during operation, that it melts the connector off the back of the switch, ultimately rendering the A/C inoperable. An apparent solution to this is to only use the blower at its highest setting to keep resistance off the switch, or replace the assembly with an aftermarket solution.
Throttle position switch went out at 80,000. $25 part at Auto Zone.
It isn't quick, and is less than spectacular on gas, averaging 20-21 MPG mixed driving.
It has been good to me with no issues that weren't caused by my own doing (Spectre intake parts damaging the MAF sensors and creating a very unusual ride).
In terms of build quality, economy and performance, there are better options and I wish I'd understood that when I bought this car. Yet I've developed a love-hate relationship with it. It's not the best in any category, but neither am I.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
