Awsome — This car is so fun. The quality is amazing. Performance is like a Ferarri. So fast it's unbelieveable. Cost is cheap just needs gas to run. Vrrrooom is the noise the engine makes. Thank you for listening to me. Go out and by one right now.

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

The World's Worst, But Best First Car — Too much money in that piece of crap! sure it has all the options but its killing me in parts, o well, first car, it will be driving soon. It's not a bad four door though, good size, good V6, but whatever a grand in parts and the car was free so I'm sorta happy
