I realize we made a bad decision buying this car without having our mechanic look at it.
We bought it with 135,000 miles and drove it for a year.
It chugged oil with no visible leaks.
In the 12 months we replaced the key/ignition $300, both headlights $20 each, transmission $2200, wheel bearing $300, tires $1000, 1 of the alignment control bars $150, dipstick tube $45, and AC compressor $900.
It failed emissions after all this and then a lady ran a red light and totalled it for us.
Thank you lady.
Put the thing out of its misery.
Fun to drive though.
In the 2 door the passenger seat tears up the front seat belt cover when lifted.
