I love this car. I got it fourth or fifth hand but it is as reliable as any car that's 10 years younger. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. As long as it is maintained there will not be any issues. As of this review, I get an average of 30.5 miles per gallon and do the 3000 mile oil change. Other than that, the car is perfect.
I don't know why the description says fwd, becuase mine is definitely a rear wheel drive, and even though it might not seem powerful, the weight ensures that it can still burn out.
The old design leads to have a shabbier look. So if that's an issue, pretty up the exterior with some cheap paint and put in a nice audio system. That makes my ride all the more fun.
