Title — I bought this car on the spur of the moment when my 1998 Chevy Venture bit the dust. After some work, I have really enjoyed driving it even though it is far from a speedster. It is pretty easy to work on and has personality.

Good Work Car — This is my car for going back and forth to work. It's not the most appealing car but it is excellent on fuel (gets close to 50 mpg) and the build quality is good. The engine runs great and the tranny shifts smooth but it underpowered, but thats probably why the milage is so good.

3 Door — The 3rd door behind the driver side door makes it so easy quickly toss anything into the back seat without haveing to work around or move the front seat.

Pros

Great fuel mileage. Fun car to toss around on the weekends/on the way to work. Perky acceleration.

Cons

No dome light. Fuel cap door switch. Lack of upgrades. Chevy 350 doesn't fit under the hood.

Fun Car — I got the car used for $5000, mainly I was looking for any vehicle that was red and had a manual. Even though I have owned it for less than a year the car and I have been through a lot. Currently I have it in the shop getting a new engine. The bearing between the rod and crankshaft shattered. Overall, not bad, I'm a thick guy and 6 foot barefoot and with my boots its a little more, which inches matters in this car, the roof is low, but I have been on a few road trips that were around 5 hours in the car and I didn't notice any more fatigue than when I have been in other vehicles. Good Car, good deal for what I paid.
