Very Reliable — 1.9 liter sohc fuel injected engine. 4 speed auto transmission. stock quarter mile time is in the 17's. Well built vehicle holds together well. Small compact design, makes it easy to maneuver into small spaces.

Wonder Full Car.... — This is a great car for communing. It handles well and cruses like a jewel. Trunk space is ample and it is very reliable. This car is such an under-appreciated and over looked car. It has been very inexpensive to maintain and keep and the gas mileage is amazing especially on the highway. The car is not an eye catcher but at least it isn't a pocket picker. I just wish they had not stopped making them.

Great Car! — I like everything about the car in general, nothing wrong with it um just a few little things need to be replaced. honestly I would recommend this car for a first timer, great for college and people who have low budgets.

High On Looks, Low On Value By Dexturn

Sporty but proving expensive. Corners like a boat, parallel parking is a nightmare. Multiple blind spots due to window placements, heavy doors, low-to-ground seating. Bought this in the summer and it ... Read More
