A Great Starter Car For Anyone — considering the V-4 under the hood, it still pumps out a good amount of horsepower. the fuel economy was excellent, especially with the rising gas prices and very cheap to fix, even when something major went wrong.

Pros: uni-sex car, great lines, economical, family car, reliable

Cons: none

Buy One — this car took the worst beating out of any of the cars I've owned. Ask anybody that knows me, they've all been for a ride in the cavy, that thing went more places off road than most peoples trucks have been, it had been off of many jumps, everything you can think of doing to a car this car had done, and it took a tree, sideways at 70mph to kill it

Have Had The Car For 5 Years And It's Been Through The Wringer And Still Running Stong At 121,000 Miles. — Bought the car used in 2002 with 56,000 miles on it. I've only had to replace normal wear and tear parts other than the coil pack a year ago and the oil pressure switch 2 years ago.

Great Car — I love this car!! It runs good on gas, great handling on the street and highway driving. Car handles great in the rain and snow. Very comfortable ride. Pull down seat in the back allows you to transport boxes and things with ease. It is a great car overall.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Runs good on gas, Exterior paint in great condition.  Low miles are true original miles.

Cons: CAR HAS BEEN SOLD AND IS NO LONGER ON THE MARKET FOR SALE.
