I have only had this car for a few months, but so far I have loved it. I bought it for $1,000 only because 38mpg was written on the window.
When I bought it the following are the problems with it: the gas meter didn't work, the gas tank door didn't close, there were random rust spots all over it, the dash was cracked, the seats were torn, and the headliner had rips all over it.
The car doesn't get 38mpg, it gets 41. This car is great.
I have fixed up all of the problems except for the rust spots and gas meter. I have also put on rims, a GT Grant steering wheel, and a CD player. Mechanically, this car is just as sound as my 740IL, but more fun to drive, it's a five speed. I bought this car to use as a daily driver and it has lived up to its expectations.
Just for looks, I think I might take off the bumpers and put on some new paint after I fix the rust.
This car is really great. I plan on keeping it as long as possible.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
