Review
I bought this car from the original owner at a discount, knowing that the head gasket would eventually need repair. It was in good shape and fun to drive. I drove it over 1000 miles the first month, on a trip to Maine. About 4 months later, my mechanic replaced the gasket and also replaced the timing belt, major head bolts, and other things that needed it. Since then, it uses maybe a quart of oil per 1500 miles (instead of 500 or less miles before).
Favorite Features
Peppy acceleration, excellent torque at high rpm (over 3500). Spacious trunk/rear seat for cargo. Tight handling plus fairly soft suspension for longer trips.
Suggested Improvements
Door hinges are kind of flimsy and need periodic tightening. Doors need better sealing. Window crank needs better mechanism to avoid "clunking" when rolling down. No mechanical complaints after 12 months and total 72,000 miles (other than head gasket oil leak which was repaired).
