ReviewWatch the strut mounts, they are making the noise, not the struts. Don't let the mechanic get away with just struts, needs the mounts too to stop the noise. I bought this from a friend who got it new, now have 163K on it and runs great. Love the engine and transmission, suspension is awful, front and rear. 50/50 highway/city 23 mpg, have gotten up to 27. Geared too low for good mileage but has good pick up due to this. Just change the oil regularly and timing chain, water pump, plugs and belts every 100K and drive it everyday, through the rattles from the suspension. Turn the radio up and drown it out. $2000 and 80,000 miles not a bad deal. Still going.
Best FeaturesEngine, acceleration, solid cabin and quiet. Runs every day.
Worst FeaturesStruts and mounts are junk, even with high $ struts it can get pretty unsettled over rough road. Parts are high, go to ebay and then find a good mechanic.
