Buyers beware, skip the turbo model!!!
I purchased the vehicle from a large car lot. the vehicle was owned one time prior. it had only 95,000 original miles on everything original. I purchased the vehicle for 3,000 cash after talking them down from the 6,000 asking price. I owned the vehicle 7 months, it ran excellent until one winter morning the engine decided to blow up, the oil had been changed every 3,000 miles (4x total) and everything was cared for. Why did this car do me wrong? Nobody could tell me, some repair shops told me that the turbos tend to go bad after 100,000. Well that was obvious,I sold the car for $500 to a mechanic, anti-freeze and oil were pouring out the tail pipe when he drove it away, yes it still ran. it was still a beautiful car. It was my 19th birthday surprise, it didn't wait for my 20th to crap out !
The interior was very pleasing to the eye, and everything was arranged well.
The vehicle got excellent gas mileage, unbelievable in fact, over 40 mpg.
Everything worked inside and out the entire time, before the engine went bad.
The car never had any overheating or electrical problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
