Bought this car back in 1999 with 80,000 km. Now have 122,000 km and have put so much money into the car! The transmission (manual) had to be fixed for over a grand! My transmission is completely screwed again! So now I have the pleasure of fixing it again. Some will say "well, maybe its the way you drive the car." But I have had several standard cars, none have had any transmission problems.
Fuel economy is bad. I get 360 km a tank on average. I replaced the alternator and starter twice. Peformance on the car is very good... it picks up nicely. Overall, I would say don't buy a 1993 because it was the first model year. If you can, buy a 95 or so.
