Bought at 75,000mi.
Had some expensive repairs but overall been happy with the ride and reliability.
My suggestion for anyone owning this car is to keep up regular maintenance from the dealership.
The dealership is more expensive, but they know what they are doing and won't charge for services you don't need.
This car had an oil leak that was expensive and require the engine to be removed.
The alternator, distributor and radiator belts and hoses were replaced.
Power steering rack and pinion, hoses, CV boots engine mounts replaced.
I probably wouldn't have taken this route again as the repairs added up to what new car payments would be, but I have a decent car now and enjoy it.

Who can say no to a free car? When I got this car it seriously needed some TLC. The previous owners didn't take care of it. So I when ahead and did all the maintenance on it, but it still some parts to be replace like axle, suspension bushing, tires. Other then that the car runs pretty good.

I purchased this car for 200 dollars. I had to put in a new radiator and starter, before it would drive. After that I drove it out to California, which was a 2000 mile drive. The alternator went out on the trip there.I had it for about 6 months after that and it had no problems and I was happy with it. Then the problems started. I had to replace the half-shafts. The check engine light came on with no explanation for it ever being found. The air bag light would flicker on and off. The power steering leaked, as did the oil. Then the alternator went bad again. Then the transmission started slipping. Then the exhaust rusted out. Everything was replaced until the engine itself went bad.I gave up.
