Great gas mileage (40 mpg highway) and
fairly decent drivability are the only
good thing about this car. Had nothing
but problems. Was in shop 5 times after
only 4 months driving. Had to replace
front and rear shocks, remove dash and
insert foam to eliminate extensive
rattling (still rattles). The whole
bloody car rattles. Gear shifter pops
out of gear, brakes make horrible
metallic pop when first used, clutch and
brake pedal squeak like rusty door
hinges, etc, etc. Serious quality
Great gas mileage.
Focus on final quality. It makes no
sense to make such a good engine and put
it into a cheap plastic rattle trap. I
had an '86 Honda that had fewer problems
when it was 12 years old.
