"this is a good starter car for someone who Needs a car RIGHT NOW. i drive it every night for work and all the time to hang out with friends so it runs real good and is reliable for work puposes. but the down side is it has no radio. there is something wrong with the front left wheel that whenyou start going it shakes the car a little bit but only lasts for 1-4 seconds. never really bothered me though. the oil light is on but the senser was tripped. i check the oil all the time and it is at the correct levels. other than that i believe this a good reliable car for someone who needs something cheap to start out with."
Pros: "27/31 MPG. Handles good. Just keeps on going."

"My family bought our Sundance about 8 years ago. It was from a deceased person and we paid $55 dollars for the car. We have put tons of miles on it, it is up to 200,000 miles. Very little work has ever been done. They are known for having bad paint jobs, bad hatchback hinges, and ignition problems. Our car has never once broken down. It is not the prettiest car anymore but at 27 mpg city and 31 mpg highway it is a very nice car. It handles good around curves, and it has a very roomy trunk for a hatchback."
"Good car. Excellerates off the line real well. Good gas mileage and pretty comfortable to drive for me at 6". My Bloodhound likes the backseat and child protection windows are perfect for him to hang his head out the windows and have the wind smack his lips around and saliva. Cars a bit top heavy around corners but can hold it's own against faster imports and V8's alike. All and all not bad for a basic car to get around town and has enough power for the highway."
"I bought this car in jan. 09. It is a 1990 16,300 mile 1 owner car. I have driven it 2,000 miles since then with no problems. These little cars run forever if you maintain them. The car will last my wife and myself well into retirement. The car will never be driven in the northeast winters, usually garage kept, mint interior, absolutely no rust underneath. Not overly powerful but makes a good basic transportation car."
