This car still has the official title of "the slowest car I have ever driven". They took the 1.6L diesel from the rabbit & slapped on an extra cylinder making it a 2.0L 5-cylinder, the only problem was that the car was more than 25% bigger, so it was even slower. I still managed to have a lot of fun with this car, it was a great road trip car, just set the cruise control & it would go all day. It was also pretty reliable & only needed a couple of belts, hoses & a used tire during the 2 years that I drove it, although the glow plugs never did work right. I wound up selling it for $50 in the fall of '96.
