Still Going After 15 Years
By cjh1948 on

OK, so this is not a sexy looking car with super electronics.
But, it is still going strong after 15 years, gets good mpg, and does not cost a lot to own/maintain.
It's not comfortable enough for long hauls, but I only use it for short, around town trips, so it meets my needs.
Paint is still holding up, as is the upholstry.
Water pump replacement is about the most major repair the car has had.
rear seat backs fold down providing an opportunity to haul long stuff in trunk
