Great pick up through the low gears. Can really move for 80 hp. Bought it at 185k and since then have only had to replace the timing belt and the muffler (I like to push the gears) Steer clear of large bumps and holes if you intend on keeping it around, suspension isn't the strongest but can get the job done.
Minimal repairs, small tires are always the ones on sale, great gas mileage and the anti theft quality. I leave the keys in mine!
