Very reliable, good commuter car
Minor maintenance-type problems (brakes, thermostat, clutch, etc.)
Struts were shot when I bought it. Never had them replaced.
Good gas mileage. Engine still had good compression. Would still peel out on pavement.
Light and easy to maneuver.
Started right up every time, even in sub-zero weather.
Everything, including AC and heat still worked great, even after I rear-ended a pickup and totalled it.
Surprisingly had a lot of cargo and back seat room for its size.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
