I bought this car for 600 dollars when I got my driver's license. This car had only 55700 original miles -- I bought it from the original owner's grand daughter. The grand daughter drove it for a bit when her nana went into assisted living, and then I bought it.
I put about 5000 miles on it during the course of three months.
Nothing on the car worked correctly -- mainly the electronics.
Although it was difficult to start in the morning and frequently stalled, it only left me stranded once.
The car was rather comfortable -- the seats were very worn (they were leather), so I usually threw a towel on the seat.
I could seat six people in it comfortably.
Unfortunately, the engine blew on the interstate when I was coming home one day. Apparently, the radiator was leaking and the car didn't have any coolant in it (the check coolant light NEVER came on). The car didn't have a temperature gauge, and I didn't know it was overheating until it was too late.
This car had many problems with it, but kept on chugging. If the car had been used slightly more, I might have had a better chance. But I have no complaints with the car considering it was so old, and never left me stranded when I went out of state or down to the beach. If you can find one of these tanks in good shape, go for it--they're built very well.
