This is a terrific car. Bought new and
still going strong.
Performance--5. Only 92 horsepower.
Handles OK, a little suspect in
Comfort-4. Fine in front.
Fuel Economy-9. 30 mpg
Fun to drive-1. A turtle can beat it off
the line but that's not why you'd buy
Interior design-8. Controls easy to
locate and use.
Exterior design-2. Passersby won't look
Build quality--9. No signs of rust even
with a Midwest existence. Backed into a
cement lightpole standard and jarred the
bumper pretty good but damage was far,
far less than I expected.
Reliability-10. Just terrific. Brake job
a couple years ago but that's it as far
as mechanical breakdowns.
This was a really dependable car, and required nothing except regular oil, filter, spark, tire changes until about 150k when I had to replace the clutch, timing belt, and master cylinder all around the same time. Now it's 250k and reached the end of its life.
