Don't let the side skirts of this car
fool you. Behind them lies plenty of
rust. This is a great car if cared for
but down the road be ready to bring
out the bondo and refurbish the wheel
wells, door jams, and the door panels.
my favorite feature is the 3.1L V6
that people arent aware of. For a
little car it has power.
A 4 speed automatic, or 5 speed manual
transmission for better gas mileage
Mine has 250,000km but runs like new.
The compression is still almost
perfect,and it starts first go. A
little bit of water under the hood, and
some body rust, but that's what ontario
winters do. I've had no major problems.
My 3.1l v6 has >160,000miles on the
original engine. The transmission has
about 70,000 miles on it(rebuilt).
I have never, EVER, been left on teh
side of the road because it broke
down. It has always started on the
first crank. I don't abuse her, but I
don't pamper her either.
I say it is a great car. I have only
had to spend money on teh
airconditioner, radiator, and I went
ahead and replaced all of the gaskets
(not neccessary, but it had minor
leaks) on the car when I bought it.
Too bad there is no aftermarket support.
