I have owned this car for about two years now and it has been an absolute joy. Minus a few repairs (mostly electrical) it has run great since i got it... it was in bad shape when i bought it but still ran hwy speeds for a month or two before i could get it fixed... come to find out the ignition coil was bad and it had been running on only one cylinder! i was very impressed. currently at about 106k miles and still going strong. very peppy it has the mpg of a four cylinder and the power of a 6. all around good car, very reliable, great cold starter, took a deer hit with no more than a broken headlight. for the price it couldn't be beat!
The trunk is perfect for sitting on, very nimble (i spent last summer picking my way along muddy jeep trails with no problems), great MPG 300+ miles on less than half a tank, comfortable...
Slight lift and bigger tires for better ground clearance. Camo paint job... and a sense of humor... Affectionately known as "The Beast"
