Outstanding quality materials
Nothing out of the ordinary except I lost 2nd gear synchro at about 150k miles (probably my fault).
Standard failures like clutch (90k), struts (?k), alternator (150k), cam seals (185k), power steering o-rings (190k), air-conditioning (170k).
Inside and outside still in good shape though used. Bare metal outside can go years without rusting. Inside materials are also excellent. Brakes (no ABS on this model and year) are inadequate. I am considering buying another of the same vintage (the All-Trac).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
