It's important that you watch the oil level in this car. Check every week or two.
I bought my car used and after about 1 month I had blown my radiator. After I took it to the shop, I got my radiator fixed but than I had issues starting the car. Once I replaced my alternator it worked fine and I haven't run into any problems since, Its been about 6 months since I bought it and I've put on close to 500 miles. She's a little bit squeaky in the morning if Its cold but that's just because the timing belt is cold and once it has some oil running through there the squeak goes away. It has pretty good gas mileage, 23 city and 30 highway so I am not having to fill it with gas all the time, plus the tank hold around 8 gallons so It's fairly cheap to fill her up. It's a nice looking, reliable car, but clearly the last owner did not take very good care of her. I haven't had to add any coolant since I busted the radiator so I know that problem is fixed and I only have to add oil every couple of months. So since I started paying more attention to her it has been a very reliable car.
