I paid $3,000 for this car when i was 19. It was used with 136,000 miles on it and with that.. I really didnt have alot of issues with. Had it for 3 years before it finally gave up at 172,000. I know thats not long, but for the milage it had, it didnt pretty well.
The only issues i had were minor- drive belt and ignition switch- both easy fixes.
Occasionally a hupcap would come off randomly while driving, but that seems to happen with steal wheels.. haha
The a/c never failed and it got decent gas milage.
Going from point A to point B and being in college on a budget.. this was a good car.
For an older car, it had a peppy style to it. I liked the interior the best, and the turn signals always made me laugh as they sounded like a snapple bottle popping open.
