I bought this car right before i went off to college in 2004 for about $1750. I just let it go a few days ago because it has a cracked head gasket which will be about $1000-1200 to fix- not worth it!!! But it lasted 5 years so I guess i got my money's worth in a way. But since having it I have gotten 2 water pumps replaced, a new radiator cap, a new belt, new brakes, new struts, a new battery, and a new alternator so it definitely gave me about 1 major mechanical problem a year. It also leaked oil. Also found out the hard way that the Low Fuel light doesn't work! Horrible gas mileage in my opinion, but could be because i never had a tune up. This car was always running hot!
pretty roomy inside. Nothing really, like i said was always waiting for the next big breakdown to happen.
Better air compressor-my floor was always wet! Power windows-driver side stopped working, and passenger window occasionally gets stuck. No more aluminum engines! Couldn't lock my doors after awhile because key stopped working on driver's side, and sometimes passenger side was stuck
