Eco Pocket Friendly. — The look of this car is somewhat stylish, front seats are comfortable, well build for size and style, accelerates well for size, should be all disc brake but brakes well enough, handle very well, good enough safety rated, fun car to drive on back country roads.

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.

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.)

An Awesome First Car, Especially For Students Like My Self :d — such a great car for its price, nice looking, well built. mine is a GSI a little more powerful, and a little better looking than the normal GS. street-wise, this car handles well and is awesome on highways, accelerates fast for its price, and is much much better than any of the cars in its price-range. 110hp is great :D

cheap on gas

Cons

its cheaply built no power

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.

Great potential.

Cons

Poor design.

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.

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!
