A great inexpensive car

I bought this car used from a friend, so I know the entire history. Everything is original except the alternator, starter motor and cooling fan were all replaced once. At 213,000 miles this car still looks, runs and drives like new. It looks cool and has plenty of zip for a 4 cylinder. Fun to drive and handles really well. If I had one complaint it would be that when the ABS kicks in it seems to do more harm than good. I've been meaning to figure out how to just disable the ABS and go with old school brakes, but it's not enough of a problem to motivate me that much. In short, these are great economical cars that just keep on going. I fully expect this to be my first car to crack 300,000 miles.

3.0

sporty, fairly dependable, in some ways cheap

I was impressed by the cars sporty performance and in the three years I owned it, I have had no major issues with it. The fuel economy is nothing special and some of its parts are cheap. The wiper linkage system fell apart and I had to salvage one from an '02 caviler. The molding on the driver side door was sort of pealing off and would get caught in the door frame. The car had 101k miles when I traded it in.

4.9

Most reliable car I ever owned

I bought this car slightly used in 2006. I owned it for 12 years and put 87000 miles on it. It was dependable and got great gas mileage. I believe this would be a perfect starter car for a young person.
