Decent car, you get what you pay for
Water pump failed at 126000 miles.
Door hinges are loose.
Exterior trunk lock doesn't work.
Decent little car for the money, though well known for alternator troubles (mine was replaced just previous to my buying it). Rides quiet for its size, but a little bouncy, nothing that shouldn't be expected from a 13yr old 2 door with original shocks/struts. Gets decent gas mileage, and can apparently take a philly curb head on and keep going with only exhaust damage (no substantial suspension damage). Rear brakes basically never wear out, though brake feel is spongy and not very responsive on this car. Wish it had a tachometer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
