I didn't have high expectations when I
bought this car and I've now owned it
for five years and it has 92,000 miles
and runs great. I drove a Honda Civic
before this car and was suprised to
find the Summit quite peppy. The only
major problem the car has is with
certain components rusting. The rotors
rust very easily for some reason and
I've had to replace them a couple of
times. The radiator also had to be
replaced. Other than that, I haven't
done anything to it that is not routine
maintenance. Mine is a standard and it
drives and handles great.
It's bare bones with nothing fancy so
there are not lots of features to
love. I do like it's simplicity which
keeps a car from having a lot of things
go wrong. Nothing on it is power, so I
don't anticipate any electrical
Well they don't make it anymore, but if
they did, they should improve the
rotors so they wouldn't rust so often.
They could make more things standard
(like a passanger side mirror, light in
the trunk, etc.), but like I said, it's
bare bones simplicity.
