Pros

It was 550 on the lot and it's perfect, I can sleep in the back when I can't make it home.

Cons

Nothing really.. is not perfect..

35

It Is A Solid Car For Less Than 700 Dollars, Olga Is A Juggernaut. — I like the fact that it has a manual transmission and the nice interior and large storage space. It has all sorts of great stuff like electric mirrors a banging stereo system, and deep bolster seats. But it doesn't have the grip that I am used to in other cars. But the great thing is it is invincible.

Make A Good Flower Pot — did not like at all to small for tall people their is no fun factor the motor is the size of a lawnmower motor with about the same horse power. If in need of a fish bowl then go get one.

Tracer — it needs tires and the brakes are a little weak. the exhaust is a little loud, the paint is chipped on the hood from bugs abd rocks, the engine needs degreased, the lights are good and the glass has no cracks

Missing It. — Really weak but was good/fun off-road. We got this car free and had it last longer than expected (4 months). Ours had a slow leak, everywhere, but it did what it could with little fuss. Wish we coulda bout a new transmission for it...

Its A Good First Car For Me. I Love Its Attitude...lol — well since my mom bought it without knowing what it looked like it was kinda more of a shock for her than it was for me. it doesnt cost too much to own it. it gets good mileage. sorta. like 33 or so and performance is good otherwise, it cant really go over 75 since i kinda broke it and its pretty characteristic. lol and its a nice size

Not A Bad Vehicle, But Would Never Buy One (mine Was Free) By Matt

It's not a bad vehicle for the year. It is overall a somewhat decent car with low mileage. Once the 100,000 mile mark comes, it starts to have some problems. I would not recommend anyone buying one if... Read More
