I used this car all through college and it was wonderful. Great engine and power, loved the driver-oriented dash and all of the gauges. Plenty of room front and back and lots of features for a "compact" car. I had to replace the alternator (a common GM problem), the variable-effort steering rack, and the paint began to peel in odd ways - but for sitting outside and getting lots of use, I couldn't really complain.

I bought this car new in 1993 and over
the years I have had to put over
$5000.00 in repairs. I am getting rid
of the car because it needs another
head-gasket, that right another! The
first one went in around 60k and now
with 114k it needs another. Buy any
other car, surely it can't be worse.

the car has been very reliable for me.
It did haave a probelm right after i
first got it, But that was due to the
people who had it before nad did not
maintain the vehicle properly. Now it
runs great and is very comfortable to
ride in and fun to drive. Has good get
up and go.
