From 1993 to 1999, the main problems
were the coolant was always missing due
to a temperature gaurge problem, hose
problem or some othe problem. In 1999,
all heck started to break lose. The
brakes failed totally in 1999 and I
luckily made it home safely (back
brakes only). From 1999 on, various
things happened included all the
injectors failed, the ignition module
failed, the head gaskets failed, etc..
The most annoying thing that made the
repairs not worth it: the car started
to look bad. The paint started to
fake, the brake light started to melt,
and the inside of the door would scorch
your arm because the metal would get
too hot in the sun.
The radio - you will never find a
better radio in a cheap car.
The coolant system needs an overhaul.
The major repair in 2003 would not have
mattered if I wasn't making coolant
system repairs every year.
