Despite the fact that it was and still is a dull car, it was a ride or die! I bought this car for 1700 dollars, with 180,000 miles on it. It saved so much gas, and rode like a boss. I went to the bay area 3 times, and what not. But now that it has 230,000 miles, this car has faced a bit of problems. The catalytic converter is messed up, so it wont pass smog. But overall, this car has proved itself. I never had a tran problem, nor engine problem. It still turns on without hesitation, and still rides hard. I will always love the car for the memories I put in it, and the reliability.
Gas, reliability, compactness (ability to park anywhere).
Realistically, way too small on the inside, too plain, wished I would've got my hands on a GXE or 200ZX. outlook was too girly. I'm a dude trying to save a dollar, come on!
