When I picked this car up it hadn't
been treated very well, but after doing
some minor maintenance such as brakes,
hoses, belts and tune-up, it was
wonderful! This car took me on many a
road trip and was my daily driver on
the pot-holed streets of New York
City. It was nice and peppy with the 5-
speed and handled great. City mileage
could have been a little better for a
1.5L, but then again I drove it pretty
hard. Highway mileage was great. I
Bought the car with 130k and sold it
with 155k to get something bigger.
This car was infinitely better than the
Saturn I had from the same year, which
developed scores of problems at just
Handling, comfort, reliability.
Wheels were pretty dinky at 13 inches,
which made for some pretty low ground
clearance. I definitely knocked the
oil pan once or twice. And the heat!
It worked great once warmed up, but I
was usually half way home by then!
