I've had this car for almost 2 years, and have had problem after problem, regret upon regret.
I have treated it like my firstborn, always hoping that after /this/ repair it will run well for a good long time, but no, not a chance.
Got it for $2800 at 81000 miles, but put $4000 in repairs in the first year, including rotors, e-brake, sway bar links and bushings, control arm bushings, muffler, transmission mount, shifter cables, steering tie rod and lights. It never quite felt like it was driving nicely even after repairs. The story ends with the transmission failing. UNCLE!
