When I was a sophomore in high school I saved up $2200 and bought this car. When I bought it the dealership told me that the struts needed replaced. I had the car for 3 years. In that time, I replaced the struts, bushings, sway bar, had two brake jobs and bought 3 used tires to replace the ones it had. I pay for any luxuries in my life (this was a luxury to me) so I always bought the cheapest parts/labor. This may be why I kept having to get work done. I'm now a college sophomore, and 3 weeks ago while drive from school to home (120 miles- 3hrs), I ran off the highway and rolled the car. My car looked horrible but it kept me safe. I came out with one little scratch. Everyone was amazed at it
I ran off the highway and rolled the car, and it kept me perfectly safe. The EMS told me that it has a special cage feature that is there to keep people safe in the event of a roll. It did great. I didn't have any passengers with me, but the car was perfectly sturdy around where passengers would've been sitting (except the front passenger would've had a rolled up windshield in their face). I am so grateful for this car.
The CD setup didn't work for me, and it was inconvenient anyway.
