Reliable, powerful, nice, low cost car
Seats wear fast.
Water pump blew at 79000.
Alternator blew at 65000.
Small oil leak at valve covers at 110000.
Intermittently runs hot at 120000.
The SC with 5 speed trans has lots of power. Pulls out fast and accelerates fast.
Handles well in all weathers.
In 60000 miles, it never broke down or wouldn't start.
Good fuel economy.
5 speed trans still drives good.
Must maintain and appreciate/the car will last long.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
