This was my first car, and for $500, I'm not complaining. I bought the car with 77,000 miles on it, and it has now 87000 on it, but not without a few replacements. Alternator, starter, distributor, and some front end work was all the major repairs. But I cant' complain about the 30+ mpg! A little more horsepower would be nice, mostly for passing on the highway. But she still does 75 mph with ease on the freeway. Highly unrecommended for a first car!
Gas mileage! Automatic seatbelts, 80's red interior, heat is unreal, VERY simple to install a aftermarket audio system.
Cupholders! More horsepower, also, use Electronic Fuel Injection instead of Central Fuel Injection.
