Pros: Nimble steering, great winter road handling, always starts when very cold
Cons: none
The Bottom Line: Great car with little awareness of it... Do a compression test, look at the brakes, check for smoke, and feel confident when buying a used Stanza. I am very happy!

I have owned a 1987 Stanza GXE for about 6 years now. I have over 260,000 kms on it, which is about 162,000 miles. It started burning oil and leaking it. It looks like a head gasket near the front oil return hole. There is a rubber o-ring there that ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: hauling capacity, comfort, gas mileage, reliability
Cons: doesn't corner like a pulsar, people say it looks funny
This car is sort of a cross between a wagon and a minivan.  Unlike most wagons, when you fold down the rear seat it also flips forward completely out of the way leaving a flat floor like a van.  You can haul alot of stuff in this little ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 
Pros: Comfort; amenities; interior room; handling
Cons: Engine power; noise
I drove an '87 Stanza GXE for about 4 years. It was a nice, roomy, sturdy car, a decent handler for a mid-'80s sedan and it was loaded with amenities. The seats were comfortable for long trips and were covered with plush fabric, the 6-speaker stereo was ... read more
