For the size of the engine the car did well in performance. I added intake and exhaust and noticed a slight difference. Lowering the car also enhanced handling making it fun, as well as taking it drifting and off-roading. The car has been in three accidents (all hit and runs) and has almost nothing to show for it, durability is high on this plastic-bumpered car. Even sold for $1000 five years later in 2004 with 150K miles on it. Bought it for $1200 with 80K miles and only had to do routine maintenance.
Low cost, durability, and good gas mileage.
Front windshield leaked, even after having the window replaced.
Got the car at 12 years old with 76000
miles. Put 34000 on it and it still
starts every time. Only needed regular
maintenance, parts wore out, oil,
filters and a tuneup. I also put in a
fuel pump. It has 100000 mile and is
still going strong. Hope my next cars
is as reliable.
