This is a fun car to drive, but a
nightmare to own. I purchaced this
ride with 49,000 miles in Aug. 2001 and
since replaced: water pump, raditor,
driver and pass-rear power window
motor, driver power seat motor, radio,
pass side wheel bearing assy., blower
motor, three fog lamps, two headlamps,
alternator, all four rotars/brake pads,
and finally a battery. Finally I got
everything in working order and one hit
in the rear from a F-150 later, it's a
total. Best thing that's happened to
the car since I bought it. Next car
will be a Nissan or Honda.
Ride and acceleration. Style (although
it's showing some age). Safety.
Smooth shifting trans.
Overall reliability. Flat out
embarrasing electrical and cooling
system. Plastic interior. Overall
poor vehicle integrity. Lots of engine
for only 195 hp.(should be in the 240
hp. range without a supercharger).
