I really like this car. I bought it a year ago with 104K and it now had 120K. It has never given me any trouble. The only thing i can complain about is the 2.5L doesn't have much power and the fenders aren't very strong. Somebody bumbed my front fender with thier hip and it bent like a popcan. I like how it drives- smooth and nice. The a/c works really good. I put some Pontiac alloy wheels on it to replace the hub caps because they kept falling off on my gravel road. Otherwise this car has been really reliable and i can't complain.
Interior comfort, paint color, reliablility, smooth driver, 33 mpg on long trips, 25 mpg back and forth to school.
more power- 110 isn't much. More dent resistant sheetmetal.
I raced a 2002 Honda Civic EX with 138
hp and dusted him! This car is
extremely comfortable and the ride is
extremely smooth. The tranny will shift
to any gear as soon as you move the
center shift lever.
Great A/C fast/sporty handling, LOUD
I would suggest adding a jackson super
charger for more pep. Im replaceing the
engine with a 3.8l supercharged
intercooled V6 240 hp so it will be a
RELIABLE mostly trouble free. Did not
need major items, wheel bearings,
heater, and ignition parts until after
180,000 miles.Good starter in cold MN
winters. Rode well in long trips.
Steady 28 mpg throughout the years.
Paint job excellent condition yet.
Interior basic and functional. Sat
four winter-clothed men comfortably.
Bbeautiful running engine and tranny.
Car looks sharp. Trustworth and
reliable overall these years. Sat
Heater was ok but could have been
better for our winters. More gauges
instead of idiot lites.
