Performance at a good price
My first drive in it the motor overheated.
The rear disk brakes locked on wearing out two sets of pads in 2 months.
Constant velocity joint popped out, which meant the car could not move at all.
The water pump was replaced at 200,000kms, it was the main cause of overheating.
The welsh plugs were replaced at 210,000kms.
Currently the power steering is about to die and the front shocks are gone.
I only bought this car for $2400 to drive to work everyday, but I changed to a job where I have to drive 900kms a week which I don't think it can handle.
The motor in it is very responsive and goes when you tell it too. It can beat any standard Excel or lancer. Though the handling is not the best and with the worn out front shocks the engine sump scrapes on the ground when you do a hard left.
I would very much recommend to buyers if you want a pulsar get the one with the 1.8 litre motor if they want performance just have it serviced regularly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
