Great first car because it's safe, reliable and will last forever
Belt needs to be replaced. It squeals when high speeds are obtained and it rests. Good twenty dollar fix.
Many fuses had to be replaced. This too was pretty cheap.
Muffler rusted off the catalytic converter which was easily fixed by a friend.
Seats have holes in the back, but that is cosmetics and don't bother me.
Radio doesn't work when I want it to, something wrong with the wires.
Replaced speakers when I bought it.
Brake lights needed to be replaced as well as the socket on the passenger side. Six dollars at a dealership.
The car is a dream. For being my first car and reasonably priced, I couldn't ask for anything else. Although I'm looking forward to a truck I will definitely give this car to my brother because he'd be very safe in it and the gas mileage is awesome. About twenty eight miles to the gallon with highway traveling. Good handling if I had to say so. The only thing that bums me out is the winter time. The car is rear-wheel drive and doesn't move when you hit the gas. Took a little getting used to, but is now overlooked.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
