So easy to drive...drives like an automatic! However when you put it in reverse, you have to press the accelerator pedal slowly/gingerly or it jumps on you. Minor issue, after a couple of times you will get the hang of it and it's not a problem at all when you press slowly. Forward driving is smooth and accelerates without any hesitation, without any jerking, no movement at all. Car is steady and drives straight.
Needs new floor carpeting
Minor dent on the hood, 2 small areas of rust about 4 inches in the rocker panels, some minor tears in the seats, NO AC, has heat, left driver side door opener needs to be replaced.
