Have enjoyed this car ever since I purchased it. I am not stretching the remarks, but have absolutely had almost no trouble with it. Had window bearings replaced, ignition worked on in steering column, oil changed every 3000 miles, changed battery once. Also some work in AC. Truly, it is unbelievably a great car and still drives, rides and travels great. Carpeting great. Always use floor pads.
Bought the car for $1,100.00 with 97,000 miles on it. Now has 109,000 and I just drive it and have the oil changed every 3,000 miles. Rides better than any new car I have ever owned. Plenty of these old models with low miles and less than $1,500 dollars. When this one quits I will just buy another one. That's cheaper than repairing it.
I purchased the car with 58,000 mi. in 1998. No major problems. Very Happy with the comfortable ride. Problems have been: rear power windows required repair; shifter linkage need repair; uses oil due to wear of valve guides. The car now has 136,000 mi and runs great. I replaces the air shocks at 100,000 miles. And other than normal maintenance that has been it. Very satisfied with the car.
