I owned this car for 4 years before it was totaled in a car accident a few weeks ago. This car was a really great value. Only replaced the water pump and the head gasket. Both I did myself and I am an amateur. Parts were cheap and was easy to work on. Gas mileage was great, too. Everyone who drove it commented on how great the engine was. It looks sporty, too. The car held up very well in the accident. I am going to miss this car.
The ride was great, great pickup. The look was sporty. Parts were cheap and easy to work on as an amateur if you have the repair manual.
Headlights frosted over, but that happens. No real improvements I can think of. Good buy!
