This car is a JOY to drive.I LOVE THIS
CAR! 5sp and my GOD is it peppy for a
1.9L! I had a few problems, mostly due
to the fact it had been totalled before
I bought it. The speedo jumps and makes
a scratching noise due to a frayed
cable, the 2nd gear synchro is off so
downshifting always grinds going into
second, and that DAMNED check engine
light! it came on a week after I bought
it, I had a cylinoid replaced, and that
fixed it for another week. I had it
checked twice, both times no codes.
after that I just ignored it. many fond
memories with this car. GREAT MILEAGE!
and TONS of fun to drive. I'd get
another one in a second!
manual trans was great! good turning
radius. surprisingly roomy
cup holders!!! bad placement and not
deep enough to actually keep a cup from
falling over. fix the ghost that turns
on the "check engine" light and I'll be
