Mine was actually the the '89, but
basically the same. Bought with '91K,
had 196K on it when slid into the back
of a Saturn. Always got 30mpg or better
on Calif. gas (33mpg before that),
virtually no repairs until 180K miles
(timing chain tensioner & alternator
went). Fixed accident damage, but bad
front suspension - (from the accident?)
would be a $500+ repair & the valves &
cv joints are threatening to go, so
regretfully "retiring" it. Finding it
VERY hard to hard to replace, & will be
spending a lot more than I paid for this
GREAT gas milege, Excellent handling.
Very nimble (though not a whole lot of
power). Everyone I've talked to who has
had one of these has loved it.
Little plastic bits start breaking
around 7-8 years, original paint gets
rust under it around the same age. Like
many cars the mirrors are a bit
inadequate - wide angle "snap-on" rear
view mirrors help.
