"I still own this vehicle with just 88,000 miles on it. Since Oct 1999 when I bought it I have bought 4 new tires 3 times. I replaced the alternator and 3 Batteries over almost 15 years. Replaced all belts 2 times . All this as regular maintenance except alternator failed. Otherwise the best car I have owned for the money. The only options I got was air conditioning and automatic trans"

"This was my first car and 8 years later I still have it. I've had great luck with it so far. Nothing major has ever gone wrong with it, just normal wear and tear as you would expect from any car. Still gets great gas mileage. It's been on several long trips with no issues. I would recommend this for a teenager as a first car. It drives really well and is easy to see out of. Also very reliable."

"Got this Car as a High School Graduation present. Good little a to b car for a college student. I think it got decent gas milage (gas gauge was broken so not really sure. Don't think the car was well maintained before me but it lasted a good two years which is not bad when your buying with dirt."
