little 1.5 liter :(

Love/hate Relationship — It is a hatchback, so it has great potential for an audio system (which im in the process of taking advantage of)! Pretty good on gas, all matters on how I drive it(It is a 5 speed). Mom bought it for me!

Pros

cheap on gas

Cons

its cheaply built no power

45

Dont Buy This — Like gas mileage. They have transmission problems have no overdrive in transmission. Has no performance at all could roll down a hill faster then it could drive. Cheap to drive not the cheapest on parts. Would not suggest this car if you like performance.

Pros

I'm unemployed an this is my only car.

Cons

The brakes (paid for at Fleet Farm) need to be fixed.

85

It Is My Only Car. — I love it. Needs brakes but when fixed it is the bees knees. Quick to perform, easy on gas, over 80 mph it is as smooth as a Cadilac. If I had more horsepower, I would have a lot more tickets to pay for.

Pros

simple as far as new cars go,I like simple.

Cons

Still to meany senors and has a  computer.
handling is sucks from new,to much body roll, and both springs and struts are spongy and bouncy and bottom out easy when loaded with passengers and luggage.

Farly Simple Point A To B Driver — It's the kind of car you don't worry when parking in a bad neighbor hood , or school parking lot. It gets you where you need to go eventually and will most likely never tempt you into a speeding ticket,in fact you would have to really be trying hard to earn one in this car. It's not a chick magnet and just being seen in it keeps you humble if not embarrassed from time to time. But if your not looking to impress people and just need to get where you gotta go it's all that and then some.

Pros

Great potential.

Cons

Poor design.

35

Korea's Alfa. — Oy vey. This car was like the Korean version of Alfa Romeo....minus the speed of course. My relationship with this car was very much of the love/hate kind. It handled wonderfully such the type of car is was. Although, that was probably more so attributed to its sluggishness rather than its supreme engineering. Speaking of, the car was not built well at all. The doors were actually designed to leak....damn Koreans.

Equilibrium

Cons

Security

Gully — The car seems to me in great-looking and is an excellent fit with the form of the car with the existing technologies and demonstrated by the acceleration while driving without any obstacle with taking into account that the car is new

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

Pros

gas saver. small and easy to park. with the warranty, it was definitely a good investment for a student.

Cons

it's not an SUV. There's only so much you can fit in that car. The biggest I was ever able to fit was a twin size mattress.

35

Good On Gas. — i put this car through hell. 280 miles + a week for 2 years....and that was just driving to santa barbara from Orange County at least once a week. Not much in terms of power but it got the job done and was very reliable
