Pros

Very Cheap, take care of it it will take care of you

Cons

doesnt really have the fun factor

25

I Want Something Bigger But Will Probubly Not Sell This Car Anytime Soon — Performace - For an old 2.2L the power is good but still could be better. Braking is awesome untill you hit a patch of ice on only one side of the car the ABS kicks in and the car is stable but doesnt slow enought for much ermengencies. Cost of Ownership - gas wise its aint a litle civic but its not bad if you take it easy. Maintanance is very cheap but some might say i have a leamon cause its been too great haha

Pros

great on gas...and atleast it looks good

Cons

no performance what so ever....but in a first car that shouldn't be an Issue

35

An Ideal First Car — For a first car it is awesome....its quick in a modest sense and has fairly a nice colour (mayan gold) and it isn't rice. More importantly, it's a first car to have fun with, not a speed machine or a rally car and I won't ever expect that out of this little car, but since i put on 500km and went through only 1.5 full tanks of gass its great, little to no maintenance, and parts are dirt cheap

Too small

Good Car. — I love it I just wish that it was bigger. Not a lot of room for the kids. It is good on gas and a easy drive. I do love it just wish it was bigger. Love the interior. Only a few dings.
