This is a pretty hard to find car these days, but a great find if you can. Perfect first car for the new driver as its not that fast, easy to work on and very reliable. Mine was the base model 1991 Convertible and I had the car for about 4 years. Bought it used, with about 48,000+ on the clock and about 4 years old. I think she was just over 143,000 when we parted with each other. Ended up buying a sedan. :( I only had two complaints about it... One, the auto trans was a 3 speed, so it lacked the additional overdrive gear, so fuel economy wasn't great on long trips (San Diego to Vegas) and the convertible top only seemed to leak in the rain when the car was parked? Other than that, it was easy to drive, easy to insure (due to the small horse power rating) and easy to work on (oil changes and routine stuff). I didn't have any mechanical problems with this car at all, and mine wasn't babied. I pushed it as hard as it could go most of the time. No trans or engine issues and besides gas, oil changes and brakes, I never invested an additional dime in repairs. Now some 22 years later, if I could find another one that was in decent shape, I'd buy it for a weekender!
