This has been a great car. I've had it
for about 15 years now, and it is still
going strong at 153,000 miles. The
body has no rust and with a yearly
polish it looks brand new! It hasn't
had any more mechanical difficulty than
any other car that has endured for 15
years. It still starts every morning
strong and the engine can overpower
most cars at stop lights (Well it may
also have something to do with the
light weight of the car too). My
favorite story about the car is when a
big Ford Explorer hit it in the rear,
and the big SUV suffered minor damage
while my Colt was dent free!
Strong headlights, sleek lines for a
car designed in the 80s, good cargo
capability in back, nice manual
It would be nice if mine had come with
an AC, and a better radio.
I bought this car at 147,000 miles.
Since then, it has run like a champ and
won't die. I've only had one problem,
which is the clutch slave cylinder
leaks, but I'm just lazy, and refill
every so often. Even at 13 years old,
this car still gets 30/40 city/hwy mpg.
Absolutely a wonderful commuter car.
