I have had but one real problem and that was the fuel pump. I found one in a wrecking yard for 35.00 and have no problems since. I have changed the spark plugs and the brakes need done and possible cv joint will be needing replaced soon, but what do you expect after 238,000 miles. It has been the best little car I have ever bought.
I bought this car in 2000 when I was a
freshman in college for $1400. Little
did I know i would have to spend about
another $700 to get it in shape. The
problems have been minimal and parts
have pretty reasonable prices.
Although it is a 4 cylinder, it
performs very well and gets average gas
milage. It has a sporty feel and
easily passes any Accord or Camry of
its age. Passenger room is nice up
front, yet tight in the rear. The
Stanza offers everything it rivals do,
only more power and a smaller price.
I purchased this car new in 1989 and it gets great gas mileage at an average of 33 MPG HWY and 27 MPG City. It rides good, it is a comfortable ride and has been over all a great car with very little maintenance.

that begin to crop up with an aging
car, i.e.,clutch, fuel injection

styling, the Stanza would have been a
My wife has had this car for about 12 years. I have been driving it for the last 4 and have had no major problems. just standard maintenance. Am just know putting front brakes on it since my wife had owned it. Had replaced the raditor because of a slow leak, replaced the cv joints once 1 year ago. That is it. This car is roomy, has good exceleration and good on gas. Maintence has been negligible. Love this car and I'm still driving it.
