The car that just won't quit. Period
New clutch ever 100k miles, fuel pump at 125k, alternator at 140k, carburetor at 150k, ball joints at 195k, hubs rebuilt at 175k, axle shafts at 185k, minor oil leaks, numerous vacuum leaks, regular maintenance.
Parts are dirt cheap and so am I!
It's a real penalty box to drive, especially on long trips. But it is ultra reliable. I run it 75 to 85 mph all day long and it refuses to burn oil or blow up. I ran it up to 80 mph in 4th gear when it turned 200,000 miles and it wouldn't blow apart. I drive it from Nebraska to New York every summer and get 40+ mpg at 70 to 75 mph. Just throw a can of STP oil treatment in and put your foot into the carburetor!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
