I've had this vehicle now since Dec. 1992 and no problems whatsoever. 225K and still on original engine and transmission. Even radiator is OEM. Only thing needed to change was pass. window motor, clutch at 175K, muffler at 190K. I lose about 1/2 qt. of oil per 4000K oil change. Have used synthetic since new.
Zippy engine, short throw transmission, still nice styling, hatchback, 30 mpg
Radio was placed too low, more sound isolation, a 6th gear (70 mph at 3900 rpm just too much) would improve sound and mpg.
