This car was pretty much my present for my 18th birthday. I browsed around for a car and found this at a dealer. I drove it and was instantly attached to it. Yeah, it's not the fastest car on the road, but what I was looking for was there. Reliability. I live in the northeast, so there are things that are going to need changing (brake lines, exhaust system, stuff that rusts over time). Other than that, no mechanical problems to this very day. Very good car for a high school/college kid.
None really. Its an economy car. I changed the headlights to those blue/white ones for brightness.
A little more pep for the engine. Fine up until you hit highway speeds. And going up hills is just ridiculous.
