I bought this car to get me too and from work with 112 000km on it. It skips into 2nd gear with big whine on the tranny. It dosent always shift into 4th gear if I can get it up to 80km/h that is. It has always gotten me to work on time thou. Only had to replace one radiator and there does seem to be an alignment problem causing odd tire wear on the front wheels. Currently still driving it with 170000Km+ on her.
I keep getting phone calls telling me that my warranty is almost expired. How about that a 16 year old car with 170000Km that apparently is still under warrenty. Insurance is very reasonable.
Could use a little more umph from the engine but what can you expect from a $1000 car I bought 5 years ago.
