Good small car, nice for students
It NEEDS new struts, all 4 of them.
After a full tune-up, the engine light turn on (I still need to check that).
Fabric from the ceiling is starting to tear.
Overall the car runs good, shifts are smooth and the engine seems to be in good condition.
It is not the best in performance or acceleration, but c'mon, is an economy car with a little 1.6 engine, some people complain that it is too slow, but mine runs good, even on the highway. 34 MPG that makes me like it even more.
However, since it was a family car, the seats front and back were very, very dirty, took me like two hour to clean most but not all (too much dry soda on fabrics. ;b). Front seats are comfortable (way better than my sisters Stratus ;O). Oh and it also needs new sun visors (the one from the passenger is missing).
I've had the car for a month now, I knew the problem from the struts when I bought it, that problem would cost me about $300 including installation, plus $50 from the sun visors. But spending that money does not bother me, the car runs great and I got it for only $1200 ;D.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
