This Car Has Great Potential To Be A Small Race Car — i like the style and smallish figure of the car nice to drive easy on gas can race if customized (like i plan on doing to this) small compact ish automatic bad for off-roading 4 wheel drive easy to operate

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: cheap, reliable, good on gas, light weight, small, clean, rust free, 4 wheel drive, truck

Cons: too slow, 4 cylinder, oldish, automatic, truck

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: its a really good car for off roading its mainly just a traveling car but its gets from point A to be point B when you want it too

Cons: its a 4 cylinder so its a little tough to go up hills, it dont have cruise control

Constant Trouble Right From The Start - Especially Upon Approaching 90k Mi... — Let's see: mechanically, everything underneath is extremely light-duty. Front bearings constantly loosen up, vacuum lines for front hubs rip/tear frequently, sparks plug(s) blew out twice!, head gasket blown, oil pan rusted out, rear door handles and power locks haven't worked since 35K (no, it's not the fuse)...I have owned it since 27K mi and have not had a stretch of more than 2 months without a problem.

Owner for 5 years, 10 months

Miles Driven per Year:18,000
