When It Worked, It Worked Well. But When It Didn't... — This car is a 1996. And as a 1996 car things started to go wrong with it later on in it's life. I traded in this car in 2006 and only got $1000 fot it. Typical value for a North American car of that age. The engine was basically blow, but the body was perfect! I could have dropped another engine in it and kept going another 100,000kms. But that wouldn't have raised the re-sale value of the car. This car is very roomy and the "tape deck" worked great! (Also, comes out cleanly for a CD player to be installed) Sine it is 2008, I would not recommend this car to anyone looking for a used car, it's just to old. If it were 1996 again I so would, it was a great ride, and I loved it!

Good Car To Get For Cheap! — Its a nice car for the price we got it at. Needs a new gauge cluster but thats about it. It has a bit of rust on the under side of the car. Interior is good except for the gear shift lever and the side mirror adjuster on the passnger front. breaking is good. replaced the breaks about 133,500 Mi. Decent car to have through college!

Primary Use: Family transportation
