Chipped paint, burns oil like crazy, coolant leak, fuel pump is going out, serpentine belt is squeaking, the backseat is a joke -- really, nobody can fit in this car. There are some good things. I love the acceleration. Love the manual trans. I like how it handles and parking it is great. But there are so many other better cars out there. You may get it for cheap -- but it will cost you more in the long run.
I just purchased for a sweet 16 gift, i rebuilt and went through everything on the car. i have been driving it to make sure it is a safe car for her, This is a great compact car, smooth ride, great handling, great on the gas mileage. it is a very comfortable car to ride in
Bought this thing brand new...What a disappointment! Amen to the previous statement from another user about ELECTRICAL problems! Mine ate batteries like crazy...Usually the car was disabled because it would not start...Had a little transmission trouble, interior problems, seats splitting, dash cracking all under 20k...Traded for a FORD! (BTW the electrical problems were never fixed)Wanted rid of this piece of junk before the warranty expired!!!
