Since I've owned the car, I haven't tracked it, street raced or anything. The car was SOLELY for me getting to school and back, which is less than 2 miles away. I haven't had ANY problems with it. I've babied it since the day I purchased it, so it has received a monthly wash.
I changed the radiator due to pre-cautions from overheating. The car does need a new head gasket due to water seeping in. And in an act of someone trying to steal, my bumper was taken off by force. Fortunately I still have it in my garage but I haven't gotten to install it back on.
It sucks letting it go, it sounds absolutely AMAZING and handles PERFECTLY. I absolutely love it and will purchase another one later on in the years (hopefully) cause this car has been a charm having. "

Welcome to the Werkz

If its running ok despite the leaking gasket it sounds ok, but get an independant mechanic to look at it. An hour of his time is worth the investment even if its just to confirm that there isn't a huge problem, and they might knock it off the cost of repairing the car if you get them to do the work.

Good luck.
