It Was Cheap To Own,cheap To Operate,and Had A Cassette Player! — Wow this car was great going to school.Could not have wanted a better car.I never really had anybody ride with me.It was basic transportation at the most,but I didnt care,I was very happy to have a new car that I paid for all by myself.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Drove it to dallas every day M-F to get to school. 4cyl engine  got fantastic fuel economy.

Cons: back seat had absolutely no headroom.
