General Comments:

This was overall a great car, it was my first vehicle and for being a 1978 purchased in 1996, it had low mileage and was very reliable. The stuff that was a problem on it come to be expected for a car, that at the time was a year older than me. It generally started right up, even in the winter, had good pick up and traveled all over for long distances with no problem.

General Comments:

This car has served me well not ever breaking down, excellent on fuel and economy. Goes alright when you put the foot down. Seats aren't the best and same applies for the interior. Exterior has damage to the front and back very little though.
