Summary:

Smooth enjoyable ride

Faults:

Had to replace left front speaker mounts, as they rattled when idling.

Glove box sticks a little.

Inside light switch has a dirty connection.

Front lights have moisture inside them and are out of alignment

General Comments:

I drive daily on dirt roads and barely a rattle. Nice and sturdy feeling car.

Get iridium plugs, they are worth every cent.

Decent performance.

Plenty of room in the car, with nice additions such as cup holders and a modern looking dashboard, frameless windows look great and just add to the style and flair this car has, it would look amazing with mags and a body kit...

Great for a family car with plenty of room for groceries..

If you see this car for sale, check into them, they are a great car.
