Reliable basic vehicle for long term use.

The vehicle has held up enormously well over many years. It is reliable. I have had to replace the air conditioning system and the radiator as well as several tubes and fuses, and now 18 years later the transmission mounts are shot. However it still functions well. It is comfortable but not fancy, and does not have automatic features such as door locks or windows. It is a great vehicle for transportation purposes.

One of the most important things others should know is that my vehicle is great for getting around. It better suits for people who don't want to have a lot of passengers.

The thing I love most about my vehicle is that it is a small car. I don't have to spend a lot on parts if needed to be fix, low gas price, and its convenient to get around. The dislikes I have about my car is the it was used when I bought it, so it is a little worn. Also, I have a larger family which cause conflict when needed to go somewhere and the weight down on the struck.

I think that the gas usage is good for the price of the car and with the ever-rising gas prices the usage per mile is good.

I enjoy the gas usage, which is around average for the car's year. I also enjoy the automatic windows and the ability to move the mirrors from the inside if necessary. I dislike the cramped legroom and the confusing speedometer markings. I dislike the seatbelts since they are complicated to use and never seem to work properly.
