I begged my dad to help me get this car when I was a senior in high school. He decided to help me get it, but he told me to take very good care of it, or he would take it back. And believe me, I did! I have been doing a full inspection of everything on/in it, every month for the past 21 years!
I have used this car for almost everything. I off-road with it, rally with it, take it on 2000+ mile long road trips, and use it for everyday use. It lacks a that instant pick up you get from a mustang or viper, but it handles extremely well on dirt and pavement, even on snow and ice it handles really well for a FR (front-engine, Rear wheel-drive) car.
I have pushed this car quite a bit, but I have also put in more maintenance than normal to compensate. It's only had minor problems, considering how much I push it, and how many miles are on its first engine and transmission. The reliability on this car is stunning, it still runs like it is new even though I have been all over the US and Canada with it.
I Plan to keep this car until it is no longer possible to repair it.
Even after 21 years I don't think any newer car out there can compare with the reliability, durability, and lasting performance of this car. My son who is now 15 even likes how it drives.
If you ever get the chance to get one of these cars, GET IT! you will not regret it!
