Seems I've had a similar experience to everyone on here. I had to replace my alternator 3 times in 190,000 miles, belt tension, pumps, no engine or transmission problems. I've been hit at high speeds twice, and the car held up well, especially against the fort explorer at 50 mph, amazingly well actually. The car has never let me down, when something breaks you know it's coming. I want to get a new car, but i keep thinking. How much more can this thing go??? I've had it since 1999 and this thing has saved me a lot of money. I know when i turn the key its going to start. I think my car is actually coming back into style I've had it for so long :)

This is an Amazing little car. I was 16 years old when i bought this car with my own money back in June 2009 for $800. It had 210000 miles on it. I have put 13,000 miles on it in 11 months with me driving it. The thing still runs amazing i have been through one set of tires on it and have not had one mechanical thing go wrong with it. I have to put one quart of oil in it every 500 miles, but that is not bad at all. I think its the best $800 dollars i have ever spent. would recomend to anyone!!!

Hey all,I bought my little sc-1,back in 2002,other than a few minor mods and minor upkeep,its been a great little car.I admit its a bit small,and sluggish at times,but once you toon it up right,it runs great.I read somewhere in its specs,that there only rated to get 28 mpg.Thats interesting since mine now,gets 36 mpg on the hwy,and 32 in town.The secret is a good,Cold air intake,and the right plugs,with a combination of a good muffler.
All models add a standard front-passenger airbag, along with non-motorized seatbelts and a redesigned dash and steering wheel. Improvements to the base engine result in 15 more horsepower (for a total of 100) and slightly more torque. An in-dash CD player is no longer available, but a trunk-mounted changer is now optional. SC1 coupes receive new high-back front seats, while all coupes get new front-end treatments and revised wheel covers.
