I owned this car for almost 8 years. It was my second car and it set the bar high considering I bought it at 10 years old. The steering was nimble and the handling was crips, with a lot of feedback. The brakes were excellent at stopping the car, with little fade. The B21A1 took quite a pounding from me in the early years, and kept on ticking. The hydraulic clutch was excellent and I never had to replace it. The first owner never had to replace it, so as far as I know it was original with 131,000 miles on it! It was by far, one of the best cars I drove in the snow and it was only front wheel drive! I traded the car in last night and miss it already. Goodbye old trustee!
Sliding sunroof, 4 wheel disc brakes, bulletproof 5 spd, AC still worked after almost 17 years! Only one R12 charge while I owned it.
Not like this matters since it was so long ago, and the car was discontinued, but power locks would have been nice, and more back seat room.
