Review
We bought this car w/ 44,000 miles on it In 01/2000 I loved this little car, summer of '01 had to replace A/C parts, $635.00, have had replace about 4 relays switch, $50. Dec '02 car had 92,000 miles on it, waterpump went out, $600.00 to fix, june '03 Alternator and battery replaced, $675!!!! $300 tune up!! This car is so expensive to work on!! It is too expensive for me to keep, all this $ into it, and it now needs a Fuel pump, God only knows what that will cost.... Sitting in driveway waiting to get be gotten rid of!!!! I am scared to death to drive it, it seems to cost me about $600 everytime I've touched it in the last couple of years
Favorite Features
I loved the style, and power. Everything about the little car was great
Suggested Improvements
a more reliable car would be nice, some chg to design, so I could work on it myself, w/out having to pay someone $70 in labor to just switch out my battery A little stupid that my car has to be put up on lift, the tire removed to replaced a stupid battery
