Great value and reliability!
New alternator at 120,000 miles.
New front brakes at 120,000 miles.
Great commuter. 31-36 mpg day in and day out.
Ran like a champ - never failed to start in our cold winters, and front wheel drive is great in the snow.
Bought it for $3,000, had it for 5 years and put 62,000 miles on it and sold it for $2,300!
My only reliability complaint is the inside plastic trim over the front doors/windshield have plastic clips that break real easy, and then this piece seems to sag.
The only design complaint I have is the stupid automatic seat belts - what a pain - easy to get grease on yourself - they always seem to be closing when you are not ready.
Overall a great little car for the $!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
