I bought it brand new. First new car I owned and I can say after almost 11 years stills run fantastic! Still original clutch, just replaced CV joint axles after 161,000 miles. Only gripe is the windshield wiper motor went out after about 145,000 miles. Cost $80 though so not too bad. Should run 300k miles no problem!
Bought the car for $1500 from a
private party. Had 213K on the
odometer. Very little problems. Less
than $400 put into car and nothing is
wrong with it at all now. I like the
response from the car for being only
1.6 liters at 105hp. Seats big people
and is a big plus. Minimal driving
noise. Nicely made. Very fun to
drive!! Car is very well built. Solid
all around. Suspenions is nice and
ride is smooth. Very peppy engine. Gas
mileage is excellent. 31-35 every tank
driven in a suburban area.
Looks, performance, gas mileage,
It needs less body roll, that can be
fixed by replacing the struts with
aftermarket ones that lower the car
but keep the same amount of travel.
