"I purchased this beater for 250$ and it was probably the best 250 i ever spent. I have the 2.2l with the 5 sp manual trans. It has ok acceleration (aka not fast) and gets 25+ mpg. I beat this thing and it just wont break. Of course with 191,500 on the odometer things need to be replaced. So far ive replaced the starter, alternator, water pump, radiator, head gasket, wheel bearing, brakes, and all fluids and hoses. The starter still worked when i replaced it but one of the teeth were shot so i replaced it. The water pump started to leak a little bit and i got annoyed at having to check the level all the time so i replaced it. Alternator went on a trip up north so i had to replace that in Advanced autos parking lot. Radiator started to leak so i replaced that. Headgasket started to leak a little so i figured i would fix that before it got worse and trash the motor. The rear driver wheel bearing was making noises on the highway so i also had to replace that. Brakes go on every car. Parts for this car are very cheap (water pump only 25$, calipers under $30). If i didnt know how to fix this thing i would have gotten rid of it LONG ago, but most of the problems are probably from me just beating the living you know what out of it (Its more reliable than my Acura Integra...and i baby that thing). Oh ya, it also sucks in snow. I need new tires."
