This was a great car


The only major thing I had to replace on this car was all of the rods at around 110000. This was my first car. My mother had bought it new and gave it to me when I graduated from high school. I think it's unbelievable how this car held up for me since it received virtually no upkeep at all. I can't even begin to describe what this poor car went through!

General Comments:

The only reason why I sold it was because my step-father backed up into the front driver's side and I wanted a newer car. I sold it to a lady who wanted something cheap to drive to work and I bet it's still going.

So what if it isn't the best-looking car out there, it got us where we needed to go.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
