Review

Just got this car with 75k on it. Was sitting for 7.5yrs on non-op. Fixed the ASD light. Topped off the half tank of 5yr. old gas and passed smog no problem. Minor electrical issues with a loose ground on the back right tail light assembly. Also the switch that moves the pass. seat front/back has a dirty contact and is intermittent. Hate the stock anti-theft system. Don't like the vacuum operated door locks or heater box as anything vacuum operated is always prone to leaks. Just need a new fuel filter and to fix that switch on the pass. seat. Well balanced on power, handling and braking. The synchros on the manual gearbox are silky smooth and shifting is a breeze. Very quiet while driving.

Favorite Features

Seat Warmers. Dislike the sun roof as the sun can turn a white guy like me into a pink guy real quick in Sunny southern CA. I especially like the stickers from the dealership on the back windows about how the radio won't work if its ripped out/stolen. Who wants a tape player/FM stereo anyways?

Suggested Improvements

Cup holders obviously. There are vacuum lines EVERYWHERE on this car. If you aren't getting at least 300 miles on a tank of gas or you lack power you might have a vacuum leak. The lines are plastic/rubber and both can become petrified and crack from the heating/cooling cycle under the hood.
