Pretty Good Meets Our Needs — Performance improves with a good quality exhaust system, also picked up a few points in fuel mileage. DRL sucks have had many issues with that, and the driving lights/fog lights. Asside from normal maintainance nothing out of the ordinary YET. The car is fun to drive, I picked it up just for a daily driver, to from work and use my mini-van for vacations etc. The kids love the car since I upgraded the sound and exhaust.

Pros

Moonroof. Handling. Comfort. Stylish.

Cons

Entrance into trunk is a bit narrow - harder to get things in and out of. Not much room left in back seat when a child car seat is added.

Love It. — Not a whole lot to say other than I love it. Compared to the other cars I've had, it's rather comfortable as long as you're not an overly huge person. It handles well enough and rides pretty smooth. Come this winter I wasn't sure what to expect when driving in the snow, and I've been pleasantly surprised. I feel safer driving in the snow.

Pros

Easy to drive, great handling, front wheel drive and cheap to drive.

Cons

The rear brakes are drums..

55

Excellent Tuner Car To Boost. — Performance - Acceleration; fairly good for stock. Braking; good, front are shoes, back are drums. Handling; great for a front wheel drive. Build Quality - I have done several repairs, but I also bought it used. Spark plugs, brakes, tires, sunroof, radio speakers, muffler, oil filter, handbrake, and replaced the engine. Appearance - It's a 2 door coupe, very sleek. Back seats don't have very much room for a full sized adult. Cost of Ownership - 30/35 mpg through city and 45mpg on highways. Maintenance; very low. Fun Factor - It rides low to the ground so cutting corners in 3rd gear is easy. Mine is a 5 speed standard with a 2.2 litter engine, straight 4 cylinder.

Pros

The color of a dark forest shiny green was what I loved most about this car; beside the comfortable ride was what hooked me.

Cons

It was too tight of a fit for two car seats and way too low.

45

Nice Starter Car For A High School Student Or A Mom With One Child. — I purchased this car with my own money and did not like it at first. I really wanted a truck. The car then changed my mind. The comfortable ride that it offered with the adjustable volume when you slowed or accelerated the speed was awesome. The car took the heat of living in Dallas as well. No heavy foot could beat this car or a crazy driver like me.

Fun To Drive And Will Be More Fun With More Power — It a little under powed now But I have plans to fix this can any one say 3100 v6 and maybe some boost in the future. handles great with 2" lowering springs but could be better with adjustable coil overs

Pros

Front wheel drive means better handling on and off road. Standard transmission means better fuel economy.

Cons

The seat belt sticks when trying to recoil it back into the vinyl. Backseat is not very roomy in height and it's difficult sometimes to crawl into the backseat.

55

A Very Reliable Automobile — Performance - Acceleration is best from 2nd to 4th. Braking is great with front disk brakes and back drum brakes working as one. Handling is outstanding with front wheel drive pulling instead of the rear wheel drive pushing. Appearance - The sunroof provides extra aerodynamics with the stock spoiler. Cost of Ownership - With 35mpg? You decide.. Fun Factor - I wake up every morning with only one question. When can I drive today and where?

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

Decent Car — It's a peppy car, with pretty good handling, decent mileage, been in the shop for some of the normal repairs, was cheap to buy and insure.The interior has a good look about it, and a nice feel. Overall it's a fun car to drive, but not so fun to maintain. If I were to do it again, I'd sacrifice the interior looks and go for the Cavalier instead

Gas mileage

Cons

sits so low to the ground

25

Its Ok For A Hard Top Road — Its a good riding car in the summer, awesome heater in the winter, just sits to low to the ground for where I live. If in city it would be a great car! Rides smooth, sometimes to smooth as you are going down the road and you think you are going 55-60 and you are going 75. Thats when cruise controll would be handy,
