I've had my 1999 1.6L KN since new and I can't think of a car that could have got me to and from work the whole time any more reliably.

Excellent heater, A/C, (Never been regassed) and reasonable fuel economy (7.0 on the open road, around 8.5 around town).A inlet manifold exhaust sensor was changed because of rough running early on but that was the ONLY part I've had to replaced that wouldn't normally have to be replaced after a reasonable time.(Leads,coils, belts,timing belts etc.) Plan to keep the little Laser for a while yet!

The current service included replacing two tyres and a much needed wheel alignment. The car is booked soon to have an engine mount, and two drive belts replaced. Later on I'll have replaced, the front shockers and the worn front suspension lower control arm bushes.
The last two jobs are going to be quite expensive. In spite of that I like driving this car and is loathe to part with it. It is reliable and quite economical. The seating comfort could have done with more effort though. Overall, it handles well and gets me from A to B every time.

The system doesn't have a USB socket unlike its Mazda equivalent. The volume control knob has lost a bit of its control. I may replace the system soon with one with all the bells and whistles.

The repairs to the suspension will have to wait after I've paid the registration this month. The front end will still have to wait a while. Today I had the KMart $209 service like last time. Other problems had popped up since the last service. The engine had been running rough at times, sometimes stalling.

Brake fluid needed flushing as well. In the wings is a throttle body service, new centre stop light, battery, transmission service and other stuff. All up another $3200 worth.

Car returned after a few days in repair at Bendigo. My experienced mechanic mate attended to a few important issues. He replaced the front shockers, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter and battery. The brake pads got a makeover and cleaned the throttle body. The front suspension was fixed up properly with new bushes and a wheel alignment. There's still a few other jobs needed such a transmission service and fix a minor knock of the rear stabiliser, which needs replacing. The car runs much better now with improved handling and braking.
