Very inexpensive to own

ReviewI paid about $8,500 for this car in 1993. I'm very happy with the repair record; until just the last year, the car just has never needed repairs. The car is a V6 with plenty of power and I've never had a major problem with it. The body metal has lasted very well; the clutch has nearly 100,000 miles on it. The biggest problem right now is a squeak from the sway bar bushings, which the mechanic has convinced me is harmless. This is really the requiem for my car as the paint is faded, the clutch has started to slip, and I don't think it's worth it to replace it. But this has been a very cheap car to own, and great performance for the money.
Best FeaturesFast V6 engine, good handling, reliability, low number of repairs needed, starts well in cold weather, no major problems, ever. Good body metal--no rust after 12 years even though paint is badly faded.
Worst FeaturesBetter body paint.
