Pros

Great for gas mileage, styling, and cost of ownership

Cons

build quality and performance weak.

Good General Car For Commuting - Small Back Seats — Performance is only average to slightly below average. Good gas mileage and handling. But poor acceleration and braking. Engine is undersized for the weight of the car. Appearance and styling is nice and cost of ownership is minimal. Original sound system is nice but general overall quality is poor. Constant rattles and squeeks that are easily drowned out by the stereo.

Pros

Was a blast to drive on the country roads.

Cons

Transmission recall that the dealership wouldn't honor since I didn't take the extended warranty.

35

Car Go Vroom! — Watch out for the shaft in the transmission. It was a recall but if you did not take the extended warranty on your used car they will not repair anything. Mine blew out the side of the transmission. Sucked majorly!

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

Avenger — This car was a mini viper, but I would have loved having it rear wheel drive and a six speed manual... It also didn't have any aftermarket performance enhancement parts for the six cylinder! It was frustrating, so I went with 19" Axis S7evens... Awesome set of wheels for this car... Unfortunately she blew a tie rod at 80 in a tight left hander... C'est la Vie...

Great Vehicle To Own And Drive — It has very good handling, it looks like a sports car, it gets great gas mileage and I do the maintenance myself. It is a very fun car to drive. Performance could be better but thats what aftermarket is for.

Crap — This is the worst car ever built in the entire world. it looked somewhat cool but performed like an underpowered box. never ever buy a car like this it was not fun at all and very pathetic. if the opportunity arises dont buy this car.

good condition, great pick up, and good look

My Care — I love the speed and the pick up my car has with its v6 engine. Its kinda old and worn out so it doesn't work to its full ability. But i hate the fact that i have put over $800 dollars in to it for maintenance. I love my car because I am lucky to have such a good car for my age and it didn't cost me much at all. But once i can get enough money to get a new one i will, but it will need to be gas friendly. Gas is just way to expensive.

agresive styling, good power, great feal from the drivers seat.

Cons

no leg room for back seats, turning radius is tooo wide, handling is Nil in snow and wet roads

Family Soprts Coupe? — this is a very Family friendly car, though its sporty coupe body isn't great for getting friends in the back seats, there is still enough room for your kids, the power is noticable but not over the top, road noise is minimal those in the front seats will find they have more than enough leg room for a 6'5" person. over all the car is strong safe and fun while being conservative and reliable.

It runs smooth and looks decent.

Cons

It's red, two doors, and is considered a sports car on insurance. (insurance is ridiculous)

First Car And Still Running! — Interior is decent, though I have made changes. Have leather seat covers, put in a CD player, laser/radar detector, green light... Exterior red, no dents or scratches. Performance is great!
