The build of the car is wonderful. It is a hard ride, heavy, and you know you are driving a car. They do not build cars like the way they built this car. The seats are leather and is so classic. Originally, it could reach high speeds on the highway without any problems. Now, the car rattles around. I guess this is what happens with a 22 year old car. When I first bought it, it was a commuting car. Now, it breaks down so often I use it for local errands and to take my elderly parents to the local church on Sundays. Hence, this car is not really reliable. Many times as of late I've considered selling it to a collector or a high schooler who is good with cars and knows how to appreciate such a beautiful yet old car. The style is always, always in. It's very comfortable. The fuel economy i... (more)
Story
I was driving around Oakland, CA with my girlfriend after just getting some In-N-Out. We were both skipping work (clearly, in my younger days), and she was feeding me Monster Fries as we spun around.
Pros
My favorite feature about the car is it's heavy drive and classic look. It is and always will be very fashionable, it's a girl's favorite accessory! My co-workers at one point called me "The bitch with the bags and the Mercedes-Benz"
Cons
The cons is it's not reliable. It breaks down at least once a month. I'm afraid to drive it long distances.

This car was purchased for my daughter before she went to college. And I took over when she no longer needed it. Overall, it was well maintained by regular services and some changes of parts. It's been over 12 years now I still drive it weekly with no problem. I think the low mileage of my driving is one of the factors.
Story
I do not recall any fun story except a memorable one with getting traffic tickets.
Pros
Small and easy to park and drive Dependable and very few problems
Cons
It has some minor part issues such as rear lamps required frequent changes....

It is slow as a turtle and can barely keep up at modern highway speeds. The car vibrates as the engine runs and even with a brand new exhaust fumes still seep into the interior. The front end looks amazing with round headlights and fog lights That car is like the woman but not in the way that the woman is like the flower. The car takes diesel fuel which in my neck of the woods can be hard to find. The car is yellow and when I am picking people up from the airport, I can sneak in the taxi lane.
Story
I went to the drive thru when the exhaust was broken and I had to turn the car off so I could order.
Pros
I look like a diplomat when I drive it. It is also gas efficient. There is plenty of room in the cars interior.
Cons
The car does not start well when it is cold out and needs to be plugged in before hand with an engine block heater. The alternator and vacuum pump need a surprising amount of maintenance.
