I bought this car as my first. I
purchased it with only 112,000 km on it. In
the last year I have put about 40,000 km on
it. It was in good shape when I got it,
but it seemed that everything wanted to
go wrong. I have replaced: radiator,
water pump, plugs, belts, oil pan, all
engine gaskets and seals, timing,
exhaust several times, lights which the
dumb car keeps blowing, and the list
goes on and on. The interior overall is
designed good but the material on the
seats was cheap and it came apart in the
seams. It is however a reliable car if
you can keep up with costly repairs, and
they are costly cause it comes with a
Fuel efficient, that's all I can say.
Not very oil efficient. And believe me
or not, I truely babied this car.
Don't even think about putting a
subwoofer in it because it rattles
apart, all panels rattle inside and
there is no possible way to remove them.
Also, 4' paper cone speakers in the dash
were a drag. And no matter what I do I
can not get rid of annoying engine
tick!!! Belts squeal on EVERY model.
