The car seemed to be an accident magnet. I had the car for less than 2 years and was in 6 accidents -- none of them my fault. In fact, that's what killed her... the thing got totaled from a freak head-on collision when another driver apparently didn't notice the car and attempted to make a turn -- right into the front of my car. I had the same accident in the same spot only 6 months prior (so that intersection was accidents number 4 and 6).
It also had issues with the catalytic converter more than once.
The car squeaked from the back. I had at least 5 garages look at it and spent -- if you can believe it -- over $1000 to correct the issue. Of course, it never got corrected. One garage suggested completely removing the back half of the car and replacing it.
A fun to drive economical budget mobile. Mine was a white 2-door hatchback. I haven't seen many of those, for some reason. I usually see white 4-doors.
Cheap to buy, doesn't cost as much as an import to get fixed -- especially now when used parts will be running rampant as these cars are not known for their longevity. But, still, the unsolved squeaking really bothered me.
The interior looked a little chintzy, like the fabric had been picked up by Dodge at a second-hand store.
Overall, I did not care much for this car. While it was good on gas and such, it drove sluggishly and the AC was no longer working at the 3 year, 43000 mile mark (when I bought it). It is a budget mobile at it's cheesiest.
It also looked as if it had been in several accidents BEFORE I purchased it. The white paint didn't match from one part to the next... leading me to believe that the car was, in fact, cursed. May it rest in peace.
