I needed a new alternator.
Need to tighten the steering belt, it began to get a lot of slack. Hard to turn in small areas at slow speeds in the cold weather.
Radiator hose busted, continued to run the car for 20 miles. All antifreeze ran out of system. Overheated the car engine off the charts on the interior gauge. Smoke and steam pouring out of engine. So I changed the oil, refilled the antifreeze system with a new hose too. Car still runs great. Little bit of white sludge in oil.
Hit a deer that dented the left front fender and ripped off the driver side mirror. Didn't affect car much at all.
The car gets stuck at certain RPM sometimes now, not sure of problem.
Transmission between gears is a little rough when it switches gears.
Car's front end shakes a little at speeds of 61 MPH or more.
Muffler has a hole in it.
Glove compartment broken.
I absolutely love my car.
It handles well around turns.
The cabin is very comfortable and is very spacious.
It is not exactly the best looking car, but with the right color and options it can start to look like a sporty, more expensive car.
I take good care of my car, but still run the living crap out of it, and it keeps on moving.
Great beginner car.
Small problems here and there, but easily and cheaply fixed.
Great gas mileage. I run my car hard and still get 25-35 miles per gallon.
I hope my car lives forever!
