this car has been unbelievably reliable and
worry frre; engine and transmission have no
problems thus far for 100,000+ miles!
handles well, convenient interior, nice
the hatchback is great for all loading/
working needs; however it would be nice not
to have the ''lip'' to lift thgings over and
instead have a flat ''slide out '' for stuff when
taking stuff out of the hatch.
over all this isd a GREAT car for the money--
i hope to have it for another 200,000 miles,
as it has beern touted in consumer reports...
moveable, convenient seating, roomy
HANDLES EXTREMELY WELL--A VERY
SAFE CAR--MY MOST IMPORTANTB
as previously mentioned: flatten the ''lip'' in
the hatchback area so things can be slid out
in steaad of having to be lifted over and out..
I have driven the heck out of my car
and its survived ok.But I had a few
probs:a/c broke,axels replaced 3 times
in 3 yrs,alt,radi,trans grinds,clutch,
brakes replaced every 2k's,antenna,etc.
But I love my car.It has 250k but still
runs great.It had been wrecked before
so it isn't perfect,but it starts up
every time I turn the key.
b18a motor,resale value,seats hug you,
easy to customize,the fact your driving
Brakes wear out quick,seat tear easy.
Don't buy one from a teen boy,IT HAS
BEEN RACED. I should know, I've gotten
a $978 ticket for 127mph in 70mph zone!
This is one of the best cars I have
tested and driven daily. I have over
167,000 miles on it. I put 15,000 on
myself with no other problems than a few
front suspenstion bushings and a timing
belt. Beautiful car!!!
Drivers position, ease of repairs, and
Oil filer placement if poor. I suggest
getting a remote oil filter kit.
