If you've been looking at cars in this price range and haven't found the one, you can stop your search here. This is it!
I bought this a couple of months ago from an older couple who babied this car, and always kept it in the garage. It shows! It is in incredible condition. You won't find a better car at this price. The prior owners made occasional trips to Minnesota from Texas, so a significant portion of the mileage is highway miles.
I have driven it for the last two months and haven't had a single problem. The climate control works perfectly. Engine starts every time without hesitation. The drive is smooth and solid.
The only negatives: A corner of the vinyl on the inside driver door has come loose (see pic) (it can easily be pushed back into the cracks, but it eventually works its way loose again); the CD player doesn't work, although the radio works great; and there is a slight rattle sometimes at low speeds. I am not a car expert, so I have no idea what it is, but it doesn't affect the performance of this workhorse, which has a lot more life in it!
