Great car as long as you are fairly mechanically inclined!
New timing belt $750.
2 New CV joints and new half-shaft.
New Engine at 135,000 miles (2 weeks after timing belt change) --ba.
Leather interior shot--replaced interior.
Rear brake calipers froze--new rotors, calipers, and pads.
We bought this car on E-bay for only $700 for a 16 year old. It had been sitting for months unused.
We did all the work ourselves (after timing belt), parts can be tough to find, but for the most part assembly is fairly easy.
It's a lot of car for a 16 year old. I'd love to trade him for it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
