I had one of these I bought new in 1990 and put 100,000 trouble free miles on it. I bought a new one in 1992 for my mother-in-law and she drove it until she passed away. She loved it and it has sat the last few years as we just could not sell it. I started driving it again recently and it runs like the day we bought it. These were good cars for the money, this car has 77,000 miles on it without a single problem.
good mileage, hatchback is handy and has good storage space. seats sit pretty well for a small car.
none really. I wish the automatic trans was a 4 speed, but it does fine.
We bought this car with 8000 miles on it in 1993 for my Mother-in-Law. She loved it and would not have traded it for a new Mercedes. She has passed away now and the car is in mint condition with 77,000 miles on it. We have never had a minutes trouble from it and it will never be sold.
gas mileage, good to drive, reliable
None really, for it's price point, it was an excellent vehicle
I bought the car in August/2002.
Three weeks into my purchase, the head
gasket broke. Two months and $800
later, the cam shaft broke. $300
later, it broke again. I have a good
mechanic who didn't charge me the 2nd
time but he said it will break again
because the engine isn't holding the
cam shaft in place right.
