Might be a good car after the problems are fixed
Alternator went out. New one did not cost that much --$78.
I purchased new spark plugs and wires-$22.
Clicking sound can be heard when cutting the wheel.
Sometimes it is hard to start and frequently"floods out."I suspect carburetor problems.
I bought this beautiful car just two weeks ago for only $300!I mean, the body and trim are almost like new. No rust, dents, tears in the seats, cracks in dash, ect.After cleaning it up it shines up like a new penny!
I read the reviews here about these cars and it influenced me to buy it. I could not resist it for the price, but I did anticipate some problems.
However it burns no oil or tranny fluid;that's the main thing. The engine is clean. But it often floods out. I can go a few miles, shut it off and it will turn over, but not start. The odor of gas is strong. I think it is flooding out somehow -- but after 10 minutes it will start. This is the only problem with it right now. Wish I could fix it!
This is a real nice car and would be a pleasure to drive if I can get the problem fixed.
My local parts store told me these cars can last up to 250,000 miles and sometimes more!
I am not going to give up on it -I plan to get a good mechanic to fix it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
