This car, though 30 years old, is a great little car. Nearing 250,000 miles it still has great gas mileage and gets me where I am going quite comfortably. It had to have a new engine installed at 150,000 miles but this was not due to normal wear and tear. It was because of a mistake made by a mechanic that required the replacement of the image. Though there has been a need every now and again to repair this or that, overall it has been one of the best cars I have ever owned. The air conditioner can still make you feel as though you are in the Arctic, and the reclining bucket seats makes it simple for you to find that perfect location for a comfortable drive. The small trunk has a lot more room than one would think. I have fit 2 45" large screen TV's in the trunk by lying down the back ... (more)
Title
When the radio began to get picky about working. I didn't realize I had left it on the last time I had driven it. I was going down the road and all of the sudden this whistling and crackling sound blared out loudly making me jump.
Pros
The adjustable, reclining bucket seats afford a multitude of positions for a comfortable drive. Living in an area with steamy summers, the icy cold air conditioning is very nice. The amazing gas mileage is one that is very hard to match. The small size and easy handling make it a dream to maneuver the streets in rush hour as well as during the off hours of driving. I love the roomy trunk and the fact that you can lower the back seats back section so that you can store larger items in the trunk area.
Cons
The only negative I can think of is how low the car sits on the road. You feel as if your rear is only an inch or so off the road. Once you get used to this it isn't so bad.

I feel like this is a very solid vehicle for the every day commuter. I drive this every day to work. After a year of ownership, I've had no issues with it whatsoever. It's comfortable for long distances, I've taken it out of town a few times, it gets decent gas mileage, as well as being spacious enough, being 6'4" this is a huge plus. The interior is nice very sleek looking, although the material the dash is made out of seems to hold onto dust well. The stock sound system is very nice, with no distortion even at high volumes. Great bass, as well as high frequencies. Plenty of options to tweak the sound to your liking. The headlights are pretty good, no complaints there, and the high beams are very bright. Overall I feel like this car is great for someone looking for a car with good gas... (more)

This vehicle is the most cost-effective transportation I have ever owned. The build quality and engineering are impressive, even being twenty-seven years old. It still has good get-up-and-go and has been very economical, getting better fuel economy than that listed for many new vehicles. After I bought it for $200, only one major repair was required to bring it back to life. I have driven across the United States twice, with only one issue (a cracked coolant line). Even with that, I was on the road in just over an hour after repair and drove over 800 miles in the same day. On the engineering side, the simplicity of the automobile and quality of design make it easy and cheap to deal with issues along the road. A small tool kit in the vehicle, for which there is ample space, makes... (more)
Title
Despite its age, the vehicle is in near perfect condition, and is always recognizable on the roadways. When friends and family see the car, they always know it is me. In my hometown of Wenatchee, Washington and the surrounding area of over 100,000 people, everyone knows where I am when they see the car.
Pros
Despite the small size of the vehicle, there is enough room to comfortably seat two adults for long-driving trips and four adults for shorter trips. The cargo space is very good for such a small car, and the back seats can fold down to allow for an excellent space for longer trips. It is also very easy to operate and maintain, and much more cost effective to maintain than newer and larger vehicles. It gets over 30 MPG consistently, and over 40 MPG on long highway trips. My best recorded MPG was just over 46 while driving through Nebraska and Iowa. The vehicle also has a very comfortab... (more)
Cons
Many would find fault with the automobiles engine and transmission pair, particularly in that the vehicle has a top speed of just over 75 MPH. Being low to the ground, it also has the propensity to develop exhaust damage and leaks going over bumps or items in the road that other vehicles wouldn't be troubled by. The lack of cruise control in my model is also a con, as it can cause physical fatigue to drive long distances at one time in the car. Despite this, the space in the vehicle is ample and allows for decent comfort while driving. Another drawback is the lack of air conditioning, w... (more)
