Its great for a first time car buyer. If you treat it right, it is a low maintnence, repair it yourself vehicle. Mines pushing 300 000km and still purrs like a kitten. I highly reccomend using synthetic oil. I only burn half a liter every 10 000kms between oil changes.
It has a few dents to the passenger
hood where a deer ran out in front of
me and so its not fixable unless I get
another hood and fender. So its really
not worth it. The money that I take to
fix it, I might as well go and buy
another car. other than a couple of
dents it is a good car.
Bought this at auction when it was 2
years old. Had 66k on it. Now has
148k. Had to have flywheel replaced
shortly after we got it, but only
because previous owner had installed
the wrong starter. No major problems
in over 10 years! Just a battery and
tires. No engine work ever. Still runs
great! Uses no oil. Tape player is
wearing out, but stereo is fine.
