This car is bullet-proof
My Father bought this car new for the purpose of commuting back and forth to work (about 90 miles per day round trip).
After about a year, he did not need it anymore, and sold it to me, being I had just got my drivers license in 1989. I was 16 years old. I had this car for 15 years!!!... I used it to commute for almost 10 years back and forth to work (100 miles per day). I never had a problem with it.
I took very good care of this car... regular oil changes and car washes, and that's all it needed.
I did have to replace the clutch after 215,000 miles. It cost me about 400 dollars, but I got another 150,000 miles out of the car.
During the time I owned it, I still had other cars. My Horizon was just a commuter.
After I bought my house, I had a 2 car garage, and that's where the car stayed for quite some time.
Near the end of its time, it was used as a work horse for things I needed dumped, and to throw things in to transport, because I did not want to ruin my Caddy. My nephew asked me if he could have it after he passed his road test. I did not have the heart to give it to him. I really did not want him to get laughed at by all his high school buddies... so I donated it to charity and gave him 2000 dollars towards a used vehicle. In the end, the old Horizon never ever let me down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
