Good Handling, "peppy" Engine, Good Seats, Resonable Gas Economy — Bought the car for my wife in '03. She really likes the size and agility. It changed my mind about what could be done with a four cylinder engine. I'm still a little doubtful about the long term durability. Problems with the BBS wheels - appears to be corroding 2 of the 4 wheels - clear coated? simple repaint?

Pros

Quiet, well planned interior. Stylish interior, exterior with excellent build quality. Simplicity, excellent gas mileage from the engine with adequate power. Manual transmission is a must.

Cons

Interior is too small for large people in the back seat. Engine, suspension lack sporting ambitions.

A Workhorse With European Flair. — Soft, compliant suspension mated with direct, communicative steering make this an easy day in day out driver. 4 Cyl. engine is good with low end grunt but lacks power for truly aggressive driving. Clutch is easy, light, with long pedal travel and sometimes vague shifter. An economy car with luxury intentions, the interior suprises with excellent detail, build quality, and simplicity. Car is very quiet, smooth, and dependable, allowing for long highway trips that are neither arduous nor painful. Although day to day driving is truly easy in this car, sporty driving is not to be had with the GLS model. The balence is on commuting, not on sporting.

Pros

Excellent quality, very reliable. Cheap on gas, comfortable to drive. Rides great!!!

Cons

A little small.

35

Cheap On Gas. — Car is a little small, but everything else makes up for it. The trunk is a good size, but the opening isn't. The backseat legroom is non existant for adults, and the headroom in the back isn't very good either.
