This is a solid inexpensive
beginners car. I still drive it, the paint
has peeled off but the car is solid, it
came with 1 dent at 180k miles, and
now it is at 202k w 1 more dent, I
popped both out with a little work. 40
mpg and low maintenance, I couldn't
ask for more.
Solid construction, excellent epa,
decent room for passengers and a
must drive 5spd.
Mine is the most barebones stock
vehicle out there but it is easy to
adapt to. Should've had a drop down
back seat to allow passage to the
trunk, and a more longivative paint
job. But it is still aok.
I bought this car new in 1991. Over
the years it has served us well. The
only major repair was the clutch after
about 6 years of use. It is a good
car for transportation. Only minor
things have worn out over time. An
American make would have been in the
junk yard years ago.
Small engine but very good pick up
even with the air on. Has a sporty
feel to it, even though it is a base
model. The SE-R sport model is really
mostly the same as this car.
Should only be bought with 1.8 engine
if you get a stick. Otherwise, you
will be dogging on start up from
lights or trying to get on the freeway.
