very reliable old car

Really reliable old car, I've driven mine cross country and it still runs fine. Big on maintenance and doing own repairs however. Gets bout 25-28mpg. Ok on most terrain, difficulty with high desert mountain and heavy snow (low to ground). Not enough arm room, interior very sofa like. Some basic repairs a pain due to how engine situated. This model seems to be fond of having the instrument cluster crap out and it can be hard to find at junk jards. Not a good snow drifting car since it lacks a handbreak.

I THINK YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, THE IS NOT THAT STYLISH BUT IT IS RELIABLE, AND THE MAINTENCE AND UP KEEP IS NOT EXPENSIVE

Runs more poorly than expected

Although this is a good car in terms of price and size I have had problems with it running rough despite a tune up which has been a disappointment.
