"This car has been recalled and I have had many troubles with this being my first car. I've replaced the battery, tires, windshield wipers, changed the multi disk changer to a single disc changer, changed the cd/cassette tape player to a regular cd player, replaced alternator, replaced whole a/c system, recently replaced flywheel, replaced starter twice, replaced oil, spark plugs/wires, replaced oil and oil filter, also replaced fuel and fuel filter.But with everything I've replaced and had fixed. The car runs great now! I just want a new and bigger car!"

Pros: "fun to drive, good gas milage, V6, great looking"

Cons: "None if properly maintaned"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I would have definately kept this car if the previous owners had taken care of it. After maintaing this car for over one year it gave me little fuses. Even though it was not very well maintaned the most expensive fix i had on this car was changing the brake calipers 500ish dollars and, a new set of tires were about the same. I had only bought the car for $2,400 so i had expected limited reliability. The car is fairly easy to work on aswell. The thing i loved about this car was its handling it has very sharp movements but, has tons of body roll. I wish it was a bit more powerful but since it is FWD it is understandable. Had i bought a car that was better maintaned i would want to keep it. One last thing I did overheat it due to a bad radiator and is still running like a beast so i would say it is very reliable. Great first car for anybody with very small blind spots."
