I have a 1995 GL 4-cyl 5-spd manual
with 116000 miles. It has been one of
the best cars I've owned, so why do so
many people have so many complaints?
After reading all the reviews here's
the secret. 1) Get the manual
transmission -- the automatic is
unreliable and sluggish. 2) Replace
the water pump and timing belt before
100,000 miles (doing these at the same
time saves a lot on labor) -- they
break down shortly after 100,000 and
the repair after the fact costs more
than the value of the car.
Handling and reliability
cupholders break and the door to the
gastank doesn't always work
