Hey, it's a great little car

At almost 151,000 miles it is still a
very reliable car. The only things to
fail were the EGR valve at 110,000
miles and the air conditioner condensor
cooling fan at 140,000 miles. It just
keeps going, and going and going.
Doesn't even burn any oil.
Reliability, reliability, reliability
At 92 horsepower the engine is a little
anemic, my son's '93 has 125 is a lot
stronger. But his car only has 145,000
miles on it.
