Overall my car was very reliable. The only problem I have had since rebuilding the engine is the power control module in this car which I think is a problem. I was looking for a recall on this but did not find one. Also it could get better gas mileege. I added one of those tornados to the air intake which increased fuel economy by 3 more miles.
My favorite feature was the car's handling in and out of heavy traffic.
Suggested improvements, would be to the power control module or engine control module. Better gas mileage and perhaps changing the timing belt for a chain which would result in more miles and less tearing the engine down for timing belt replacement or repair.
