Pros: Gas Mileage, Power, Reliability, Handling, Style, Comfort
Cons: Lack of overdrive on the highway (automatic transmission)
I bought this for a winter beater but I'm liking it enough that I might replace my summer car with it because the gas mileage is much better. The paint is far from perfect and the body is in need of some attention but for a car this old it's in exceptional shape and mechanically almost like new!
My only complaint is the lack of an overdrive for the automatic transmission. It's great in town and on the smaller highways but when you're going along at 70+mph this car would certainly benefit from one more gear.
I average 25mpg with about 70% of my driving being in town. Not bad for a car that is supposed to be rated at 27mpg highway. Also for a smaller car the seats are very comfortable!
I would like to have seen power windows and locks in this, but it's a small sacrafice.
Overall I've found this to be a very reliable, very peppy little car.
