97 hyundai accent,
tore the flex pipe out from under the oil pan ran and open manifold for ~6 months till i got rid of it. ( i got 5 more mpg from that too )

the valves rattled like no tomorrow,

tires were bald and would go flat,

the ectrical system was shot, going down hill on the interstate the line from the altenator to the battery would short out

the heater fan didn't work,

the entire clear coat was cracking

it blew pine needles from the vents over the entire two years that i owned it, i never parked under a pine tree.

it had diamond hard pine tree sap on the roof that i couldn't get rid of

there was something that looked like a blood stain from someone being stabbed on the headliner

the rear antisway bar was useless i noticed no difference in body roll from when it was hooked up and when it wasn't

when i bought it the oil looked like it had never been changed the filter was rusty and dented

you could scrape sludge out from the valve cover

the mount for the alternator was loose, you could move the altenator ~10 degrees (temp fixed with jb weld)

the oil pan rusted through and i had to replace the oil pump because the oil return line from the filter cracked due to the alternator issue

got rid of it when the cost for repairs @ the moment would be more that the car was worth by a long shot and got my leggy
