Its An Alright Car If Your Me Ill Say That — acceleration sucks, braking and handling are alright. i dont personally think it has a good build quality something in the back is rattling and it pisses me off. appearance dosent really matter to me...its bad enough im driving a korean 4-banger! gas mileage is a great success and i can fit 3 bikes with still 3 people so im happy about that:) its not all that fun to drive but it gets the job done!

Decent Value For Money Commuter. — A quite reliable no nonsense oil burner that just does what it is meant to do... Move and be a frugal mover. Dint expect anything else from it and was surprised to find it to be a decent sedan. Had the TUD5 diesel engine from peugeot that was an able unit, and never once did it break down .

She Doesn't Want To Give Up. — This car has been with me for a long time. I have done miner repairs and basic maintenance on it and it still keeps going. So far I have 215,000 miles on her and getting ready for my fourth set of tires. Great little car.

Horrible Car. — This car sucked. I couldn't say one good thing about it. I had problems with it every month. I paid $4800 for the car and had to shell out at least $5000 to repair it. It was not fun to drive at all.

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

Good First Car — I love how snippy this car can be sometimes, its compact and can store a good amount of things. The Transmission takes a bit to kick into gear on time and that is a bit of an annoyance, but once its warmed up it works fairly well in and out of traffic. Not a 4 door, which is my preference when it comes to vehicles, I like my passengers (when i have them) to be able to get in and out without a big ordeal in everyone having to get out of the car. But plenty of room in my opinion for 4 adults (definitely not 5) Maintenance is fair, but you have to keep up with it like any other car out there. Something no one really tells you is this has an interference engine which is a feature that baffles me. Overall; Good as a first car.
