I enjoyed it until the head gasket went.
Until the head gasket blew, I really enjoyed the car. Obviously, it is what it is. It was an over 15 year old car and it was the entry level model to begin with, and had 150,000 miles when I got it. But I used it to deliver pizzas and put about 40,000 miles on it. The fuel economy was great -- about 32 mpg on the highway and about 29 in town. It only had the small 4 cylinder engine but the intown pickup was surprisingly good. Unfortunately, it just is not worth enough to justify the expense of replacing the head gasket so I had to quit delivering. I just use it now to limp around town and I realize I am already on borrowed time, but what can you do.
