Pros

I'm unemployed an this is my only car.

Cons

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

65

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

Cheap to drive around in

Cons

No pickup at all

Decent — Acceleration is gutless, Braking would be better with new tires, handling is decent, only issue power steering hose cracked, there are better looking cars, only good thing is gas mileage about 35mpg in summer around 40mpg for highway, has no balls but still fun to drive around in. Recommendation - if you want good gas mileage.

Great Car For Little Money — 11 years and this baby still has it, excellent power even with the lower power 1.5 liter engine paint not as great as it could be, but i live in an area near a rock quarry and it is 11 years old so i suppose it could be much worse.

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
