ReviewMine 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 one.
Best FeaturesGREAT 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.
Worst FeaturesLittle 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.
