Best car you can own for getting around
Thermostat went out.
I bought the car in April 2003 from a buddy who delivered pizza with it for a year, beat it all to hell, but properly maintained it.
Besides a thermostat and brake pads, I spent nothing to maintain this car during the 25k I put on it in 9 months. I also delivered pizza with it.
It was driven all over the country. His mom went on road trips as part of her job and he drove it back and forth from Iowa to Idaho a couple times. I took it to Wisconsin and back to Iowa, and drove it to Florida. For a small dinky ass engine, it was really fast. I kept up with a supercharged 2003 Honda Accord V6 with it and it got 4th gear scratch.
I only sold it cuz I lost my license, HUGE disappointment they would stop making this good of a car...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
