Pros

Fuel economy

Cons

Oil economy

55

Fun To Beat On — Powerless little 1.9l DOHC engine, clunky 5-speed transmission, burned more oil than fuel, and was made out of at least 2/3 plastic. Was a good beater if you didn't mind having to check the oil at every stop to make sure it wasn't empty yet.

I Love It No Matter Wat. — I just wish it was more new and in good condition. Other then that I love it! Its good on gas, small enough for one person, and its easy to find parking for it. Pretty good for an old car.

Pros

performance, handling, power, exterior appearance, fuel efficiency

Cons

interior space, comfort in back seat

The '95 Sc2 — This car is an extremely fun vehicle to drive. It is very light and low so it handles well and the 5 speed and twin cam engine give it some good power. Visually its a very sharp looking car, with alloy wheels, flip-up headlights, spoiler, and low stance. It's interior is tight and some materials are cheap, but that doesnt bother me very much, except when passengers whine about the lack of space in the backseat. It gets amazing gas mileage (35 mpg!) and has been reliable as long as i've owned it.

Pros

The coupe is fun to drive and hard to imagine anything else as affordable, probably the reason they are no longer available.  The cost per year averaged not quite $400.  Love 33 MPG combined even 17 years later.   I really like the sleek style as much today as when it was new.  

Cons

Limited dealerships for service, water leaks, the same things that bothered me when it was new still do now (water leaks).

6th Rock — Overall the coupe has been a great car, I'm very sad to see the age begin to show. Driving to work one day on the while recently I noticed the drivers-side headlight seemed to be moving. It turned out to to be the headlight cover which rotten completely off.

Pros

Quick little car

Cons

Very girly looking

145

Its Good For A First Car — 0-60 in 9.5 secs, best run was a 8.64 after mods. Handles decent. In 6 months i needed to fix two items but its quality is pretty good. Exterior is girlish and paint is chipped on spoiler, interior is low tech but sound system is was ok until I upgraded it. Gas mileage is about 25-35 mpg depending on my driving. The 5 speed manual tranny is fun to use.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Super, Sadly Missed — I bought 'Goldie' new in 11/94. 5-speed manual. She had great power - I could pass going up hill! Ride was a little rough, but what a car! A huge pothole did her in last Feb. She had over 202,000 mi and still ran at full power. Body held up, too. Best car I ever owned.

Will leave cops in the dust

Cons

parts break easily, ugly, and just not cool!

The Escape Artist — The car that no one understands! Quite boring body, interior, paint. Not terribly fast, but with just a few bolt-ons this little car turns into a little beast! I cant' count how many times other people would ask me if I had turbo charged it.
