Best and most reliable car I ever found
Replaced front bumper. Though it was not badly needed, but my friend gifted it to me (was an old parts garage owner).
Engine was replaced after 7 years as there was blue smoke, which was not bothering me, but recommended by the local car testing authority. I was amazed that a new engine cost me only 250 dollars and replacement labor etc only 90 dollars.
Door lock was broken my mistake by my son. Had to get from a company for 125 dollars (compare with engine price).
Otherwise nothing in 10 years.
I bought this car in average condition, in 2000 it cost me 4000. Earlier it was roughly used by rent a car. But I am amazed at the reliability of this car. I have been driving it for 10 years. Never broke down.
1/2 Self start same AC with chill cooling. No tuning whatsoever for 10 years. One wash per year before testing. You can hardly notice the sound of engine. Pick up is like a hot blooded horse. Almost daily I screech the tires on pick up, People having expensive automatic cars are annoyed, but can never catch me before the next signal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
