I purchased this car used in 1999 with 104,000 km and it was the 4 cyl. At that time I didn't have a lot of money for a car as I had just taken out a mortgage and needed a car. I am not sorry for this purchase, as the car has lasted me until now September 2010 and is now showing it's age and I am replacing it. I've pretty much driven it into the ground and other than maintenance, had not put money into any repairs...it's been very dependable.
Love the look of the car when I purchased it and I still think it looks nice in 2010. It has been very good on gas. Driving and handling has been fun.
Because it was only the 4 cylinder, there wasn't a lot of power, but I won't complain as I bought it at a very low price when I purchased it used and it came through with flying colors for the next 11 years that I've owned it.
