Big surprise for little cost

Pros: Roomy interior with sporty design
Cons: Expensive maintenance
The Bottom Line: Definite good buy at a great price.


When my husband's car was on its last "leg," we began shopping around for a used car to replace it. (May 2001) By chance, the salesman showed us a sporty little white car that just happened to be in our price range ($5000). We sat down in it and took it for a spin around the block.
It was roomy and sporty with more comfort than I could imagine. Within two months of buying it, we took it on a road trip from Texas to Illinois. Wow, that was a comfortable ride. At that point, we were positive we had made a good buy.
The drawbacks? We bought it with pretty high mileage for a 1998. We've had to replace a few things already (brake pads, plugs and wires). I've learned that parts and labor for this particular vehicle do not come cheap. We have a crack in the windshield that was "repaired" due to the high cost of replacing the windshield (more than $300).
