Pros

milaege, virtually no maintenance

Cons

wimpy performance, light weight causes rattling while stopped

55

Get This Car If You Want To Pay Less Than $2k, And Want Low Cost Of Maintenance — Performance - accelaeration is wimpy, around 9 seconds 0-60; braking isn't too touchy and easy to control; handling is amazing, make any move with ease Build Quality - Never needs repairs, only had to replace brake pads in 90k miles, interior rattles due to light weight Cost - getting 30 mpg city, 32 mpg highway Fun Factor - fairly fun to drive to ease of handling, but lacks performance with a 2 liter, 4 cyl. engine

Pros

Gas mileage

Cons

Performance

Great To Drive Around — Never needed any repairs, great gas mileage. I like its performance, only a 4-cylinder, but accelerates quickly due to its very light weight. Amazing just for travelling and going from Point A to Point B. Twenty buck to fill the tank.
