I had this car through half of high school and most of college and it’s only had two major problems and I will admit to driving this thing a little rough. The clutch went out a year after I got it, but it wa the original clutch and the previous owner used to race it on the weekends. The other time was just that the battery had last 6 years without replacing. My only problems are that you can barely get $600 for it if it’s in average shape and that the room on the inside is almost nothing. All’s round, I’ve thouroughly enjoyed having this car.
I have owned this car for just under a year and am happy with it. It has 140000 miles, but still runs strong. Not the prettiest car inside or out, but for a family on a budget with a teenager that just started driving, this is a great car
Ive had this car for two and a half years now and regrettably looking to get rid of. As a student i dont have time to fix the massive oil/coolant leak and fix whatever is making it run lean. had about 140000 miles now and got it with 116000. Replaced clutch at about 130 both tie rods, timing belt, turn signal switch and regular maintenance. Great when it's working, but here always seems to be a problem. I will admit i did drive it pretty hard delivering pizzas.
Quick, fun to drive with tight handling as long as tie rod ends are taken care of. Manual transmission is fun and quick throttle response. Cheap paid 1500. Im 6'4 and fit great in interior.
Needs better reliability, just to often its back on jackstands with me getting frustrated.
