Pros

Very safe, I hit a car going 45 mph and only got a small crack on the front bumper. Quality is still amazing 11 years  later, still drives like a Lexus :)

Cons

I get pulled over a lot ;)

Fun, Safe & Fast. — This is an amazing car. 11 years later is still looks beautiful, drives beautifully & still fast. Only repairs have been the transmission, which is my fault because I romp the hell out of this car. It has 227,000 miles and STILL amazes people by how great it looks, how nicely it drives and how little the repairs have been!!

Pros

This is my mom's car I haven't driven it much but when I did I was impressed with it's acceleration and handling.  I prefer My BMW M but for this style of car it is impressive.  I was also surprised by the mileage I got on a trip to CA, 26 mpg.  MY M Roadster weighs over 1,000 pounds less and doesn't do that well.

Cons

Radio has a cassette player (which my mom chose because she was unfamiliar with CD's)

Smooth Ride — A finely built semi-luxury car that delivers exceptional performance with an agressive look that can accomodate the average sized family of four.

:) — Don't really like how it looks- nothing too special about that- but it is pretty durable- there are a few dents but nothing terrible and it's almost 10 yrs old and still goin strong.
