Best thing to happen to this earth
When I got it, did a full tune up; plugs, wires cap and rotor at 120000.
Water pump blew at 160500.
Broke a exhaust stud at 165000.
Very forgiving first car, learned how to drive a stick in it.
I drive it to school about 10 miles each way, but have also done 300+ trips, and it has no problems.
No power steering makes it hard when full loaded at low speeds.
Handles surprisingly well on dirt and on trails.
It has never let me down, even when the water pump blew; I got a few buckets of water and kept filling it till I got home from a 20+ mile drive.
Cabin a little small, and the motor could use more power.
Easy to work on.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
