Still sexy, solid, and reliable at 22!
Replaced EGR Valve at 50000 miles.
All new rubber at 55000 miles.
New shocks upon purchase.
Gas door line broke, had to pry it open and remove lock mechanism.
Trunk button is broken.
Vinyl interior (eg, steering wheel) stains easily.
I couldn't have asked for a better car for the 900 dollars I paid for it!
Purchased in the Southwest at 48,000 miles. Added new tires and shocks and drove it all the way to Missouri before it started to stall.
It ended up being my fault for changing the oil with synthetic (never do that to any car with more than 30,000 miles, the gunk they warn you about actually fills small holes caused by wear in your engine).
Paid around 350 and got a new EGR valve, distributor cap, all new wiring under the hood. A very easy and affordable car to find parts for.
Talk about dependability, this car drove over fifty miles with nearly no oil!
It's darn near indestructable... I was rearended in this car and was awarded 551 dollars for a new bumper and side door. In the process, two $40,000 dollar German vehicles were completely totalled!
The paint is original and faded, its got dents front to back and now that it's back east its started to rust a bit. Yet apparently its desirable - I was nearly carjacked for it the other day.
Fuel costs aren't great, but a car this size is not meant to be driven fast, so you'll save a little that way.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
