Hello, I bought this car about a year and a half ago. When I bought it, it had 165k on it. It now has 190k and it's still running. I've replaced a few things on it. I replaced the radiator, alternator, and a battery. Spark plugs and all the basic little things on it. When the radiator and alternator were replaced I found out that they were actually the original parts. These cars are very excellent and they are very reliable. I would recommend purchasing one. You will be satisfied. It is also a very fast car. It speeds up quickly. I've gotten it to go the maximum of 120.
I bought this car for $2,000 about 4 or 5 years ago at about 80K miles on it. For the first 3 years I drove it like a sports car. I have hit the max speed and stayed going that fast for most drives to work for like the first 2 years of owning it. It never gave me any reason to doubt it. I would hit corners real fast and always pushed it to its limits. That was when I was younger I have since then driven much more respectfully. But I went complete repair free for about 3 1/2 years. Only problems to this date was a stalling issue, which turned out to be my distributor. Also replaced water pump. But that was it. I still drive it to this very day with 150K miles on it. It's a beast machine.
Brought this car in 1995 with approx
57000 miles. The only problem that
I can think of is the "check engine"
light coming on at 90000 miles. The
mechanic had to replace the entire
solenoid-valve-sensor system. Cost
me approx $325. Other than that I have
found this care to give me only 25 MPG,
whether it is highway or off highway.
Otherwise has been a very reliable
conservative car to use. The facotry
stereo system without the CD leaves
a lot to be desired. Also, I had to
replace the alternator at around 100000
