Review
This has been the most basic of basic cars: no A.C., manual windows and locks, and no power steering with the manual stick. Mechanically, other than routine maintenance, very little has gone wrong with this car in 12 years and 140,000 miles. I've been through 3 starters and had to replace both the front left and front right axles (totaling about $800 for both, including labor charges). Even now, the engine is still going strong and burns little-to-no oil between changes. Given its age and mileage, I've been somewhat surprised at its reliability. Cosmetically, the interior dash has curled around the air-vents (common problem), and the paint is beginning to peel on the front bumper.
Favorite Features
- inexpensive - reliable - basic car
Suggested Improvements
- door locks freeze during the winter - uncomfortable over longer driving periods - dashboard problem (mentioned above) - slow acceleration - mpg aren't really that great for the size of the car and engine - sheet metal dents easily
