I bought this car as the 3rd owner in July of 2002. I purchased it for $2500 b/c the seller had put 144,500 miles on it and dealerships were only going to give her $2k for a trade in. I have done minimal work on this car and it has been very reliable. Routinely gets me 25+mpg. Long highway trips will net me 30 mpg. Great gas mileage.Just realized this car is still on original timing belt so that is getting replaced this week. 175,000 mils on original timing belt! wow!Wish the car had more power, but it gets the job done
great gas mileage, reliable, requires minimal maintenance
more power, car is S-L-O-W. 130 hp for this size car is sad.
I bought this car last month from a
private owner. When started, the car
makes a lot of noise (is it normal??)
Runs quitely till you reach about
60mph. Drags initially but after about
30mph, runs very smoothly. High road/
wind noise. Excellent braking &
manueverability at high speed. Leather
seats are firm but doesnot provide a
good lumbar support. Too early to
comment about reliabilty. Overall,
great peace of mind.
Noise, Noise & Noise (from everywhere).
Speed. Does anyone know a reliable
performance parts mechanic in NJ?
I bought this car for one year already,
I never go to auto repairs since I
bought this car unless oil changes.
This car runs great even it's 85000
mileages, I believe it's a reliable
type of car, and doesn't cause you much
time and money on the maintainances.
Think about it.
