I love it.
My teenage daughter and son love it.
Even my Mini Driving wife loves it.
While I bought it for just $7,200 I've had to sink $3,000 into it to make it safe.
My guess is another $3-5K to bring it into good enough shape to last the next 100K miles.
So Far: Brakes, rotors, bearings, belts and a few other odds and ends.
Suspect: Shocks, Upper/lower oil pans.
Electric window motors.
Hydraulic lifts on rear window.
Starter...So... while it's a great car to run so well with 138K miles don't kid yourselves...Maintenance can add up!
Still...I won't trade it and may buy another if I can find the right deal.
exterior looks sharp, rear sliding window for the dog, AWD is beastly, comfort, roomy
too late to improve but... the gas mileage is very 1993.
