Simply put, this is a very solid car.
12 years old, 140,000+ miles, starts
right up and just keeps going. Very
responsive (though not powerful), great
handling (especially in bad weather),
Great handling, incredible turning
radius, zippy (especially when no
passengers and an empty trunk), great
gas milage, extremely reliable.
Annoying automatic seatbelts, no cup
holders, no chime for leaving keys in
car or leaving lights on, only 92
horsepower--you notice it when
accelerating with a carful of
passengers, car easily "bottoms out"
when going over bumps, exhaust system
rusts out more quickly than expected.
