Cheap and Reliable!

I received this car as a gift from my mother in law around three years ago. She bought it from a junkyard for $1000 and it ran and got me to work every day. It had it?s problems but they are super simple and inexpensive to fix. I?ve done almost all repairs myself and I?ve never spent more than $300 which was for brand new tires. All I do now is keep up on basic maintenance and it runs like a champ. I drive it everyday speeding, taking corners fast, and braking harder than I should. No matter what I do and how I drive it keeps on going, this car never gives up. Extremely reliable, small yet comfortable, good on gas, and cheap to maintain. I highly recommend this car to anyone I love it. I would choose it over any new car.
