Durable, safe, paid off
Speed Sensor went out at 144,000 miles.
Dashboard lights behind gas and temperature gauges have burned out.
Both rear torsion bar linkages have broken ($18 part, fixed myself, pretty simple).
Replaced ball joints in both front wheels, both after 100,000 miles.
While the performance of this car is not stellar, most of its power comes above 2,000 rpm, meaning that passing on the highway is a breeze.
Great ride on the highway, cruise control maintains constant rpm up hills, no downshifting.
Overall a decent car. It was free to me, so no complaints!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
