History
Bought for my daughter in 2013 from an elderly lady about to enter in a retirement home who, sadly, had to give up driving for her own safety. Her son was selling it and had kept it well maintained for her - the exception being it sat out in the sun so the paint took a beating and lost shine and some color. But it started, only had 130K miles on it and had a great stereo, and air conditioning - great car for a college freshman all for the low price of $1,500.

Been a great little car but my daughter became ill so the car sat for over a year. Replaced the dead battery, poured Sta-bil in the gas tank, let it do its thing for a bit, tried to start, sounded like no spark so pulled the plugs and replaced along with a new fuel filter. So still not starting, can't smell fuel, checked the button that's normally in the trunk but is BURIED in the interior panels of the station wagon so that switch is in correct position. Next is to check the fuel pump relay, but I'm not sure where I can take to test. I've read I can pull another relay to try to start so tonight going to try that. The tank is full and my back is bad from a work injury so I am SO not looking forward to having to do a fuel pump replacement.
