Good Beater/spare Car — I bought it for $800 as a spare car, I beat on it, my brother beat on it, my mother, my father, and finally my little sister beat it to death. We had a repeated problem of the fuel pumps going bad and needing to be replaced. I think the rest of my family drove it more than I did. We got our money out of it. I drove it to college a bunch of times and even took it all the way down to Philly and back. My brother drove it for quite some time while his car was in the shop. My dad and mom drove it back and forth to their jobs. I gave it to my sister as her first car. She (the car) served her purpose.

Pros: Cheap and it ran

Cons: She was abused in her first relationship

Excellent Would Buy Another — absolutely enjoyed the car in the 10 years i owned it from 2001-2011. it was good to me with minor repar costs origional engine, comfortable and fun to drive. it was Motor Trends car of the year for 1988 and everyone gave this body style bad reviews cause it was the first year for front wheel drive. those people obviously dont know a good car if it hit them

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun to drive,great on curves

Cons: battery life
