Re: (crucialklint)

mine was used and abused. i mean i've NEVER seen a car that was so mishandled. on the other hand, i bought it for $500 and the first year i had it, i put about 50 bucks worth of maintenence into her, and she ran like a top. then a brake cal seized, i let her sit in the driveway for over a year, and now there's a ton of crap wrong. so yeah, if you take care of it, it'll be reliable, but hell hath no fury like a dub scorned.

Re: (DClark)

My 16v is reliable. I love how the motor sounds especially. Gas mileage on mine is around 22 to 24 miles to the gallon.

PEACE.

Keep it well maintained and it should be fine. As far as mileage, get yourself the .75 5th and you can get around 30mpg. I have the 9a trans in mine (not too good for racing but it was free and I will be putting the 4k in soon
) I get 28+ to 36 mpg on the highway doing 70.
