I bought this red car 2 years ago
because of the sporty design and price.
And I paid for my mistake of picking
looks/price over reliability. I put
$6000+ into it: clutch, radiator,
alternator, starter, rear brakes,
piston replacements, timing belt,
headlight wiring, and more. Cabin noise
was VERY loud, it shook when you drove
over 45mph, 2nd gear grinds, AC never
worked, emergency brake never worked,
and getting into reverse required 2
There isn't a day that goes by where I
don't regret buying this car. Do
yourself a favor and get a Toyota or
Honda instead. Much more reliable.
