I bought the car to pull a trailer as well as for transportation. 3 Kids drove car until they left home. Rebuilt transmission at 150,000 miles Car still in use at 270,000. Would love to get another at this value
30 miles/gallon, low maintenance cost, good power, reliability.
A decent car in its time. Mine now has almost 77,000 original miles. Original paint has peeled off the top side of the car and the interior fabric is faded, but the fabric is not worn, not torn, and the seats are in very good condition and comfortable. The comfort of the car is excellent. It is solid and quiet on the road. Other than normal consumable parts like brakes and tires, the engine has needed the head gasket to be replaced twice and the MAP and O2 sensors have failed once each.
Front seat comfort, quiet interior, good engine torque at freeway speeds.
Better paint, overdrive transmission with lower first gear ratio for better acceleration form a standing start.
Great car. I bought it with
80,000km's (49,710 miles). Drove it
pretty hard (as I generally drive) and
it held up very well. even though the
road to the cottage is rough on trucks
(let alone cars).
At about 110,000km's (68,351 miles)
the tranny gave out. Other than that,
it's been good.
A/C, relatively 'peppy' engine, comfy
seats, roomy, generally reliable,
Always seems to start... In any
weather that most would not want to.
