Overall the car has performed fairly well. After first purchasing the car the check engine light went on. The car also ran rough. Just today I learned the car had a leaky heater coil; had it by passed for a 100 dollars instead of replacing the whole thing for about a thousand. The A/C on the car is wonderful; cools in about two minutes flat. Gas mileage is about 18 miles to the gallon. The paint is not very good on the car. I would recommend it for a first car for let's say a college student. If you are a real commuter I would not buy this car; instead I would by a Nissan or Honda - two much better cars.
The air conditioning is wonderful, the basic stereo is pretty good.
The power on the car needs improving. The transmission could shift a bit more smoothly.
