Great On Gas!!! — Excellent fuel economy. Ive been driving this car on and off for a few years now and it kinda surprises me at times. It drives nice, very smooth ride for a little car, and has a great stock Monsoon sound system in it. Overall a good little car for the price tag.

One Of The Worst Cars Ive Dorve — This was my first car, it was free so i wasn't going to pass it up. The build quality was absolutely horrible as most american cars are. The performance was horrible. The interior wasn't too bad to sit in but it was nothing special. The exterior looked like it was built by a blind guy. It was just a horrible car to own and im glad i only had it for a couple months

Value Car — I like everything about this car besides it's small size - not much room for luggage! It is very reliable, though, and all maintenance for it has been quite cheap. I average between 25-30 mpg with a mix of city and highway driving, and I tend to have a heavy foot. I can get around 300 miles from one tank of fuel. It is no speed demon, but it will keep up with traffic. It has a good balance of power for it's weight.

Pros

Quick, nimble, and underestimated.

Cons

Need struts to handle some rougher corners...

Spirited Little Car. — Incredibily quick for being a little 2.2 L N/A engine. Lots of low end torque and surprisingly spirited even in the high RPM ranges. Yes this is quite a bit nicer than my last one while it was a base model. :)

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

Works For Now — wish it was a 2 door i want to put a sound system in it. it works great no accidents and it's pretty good for a starter car it costs about $50 to fill up and it lasts a long time

Love My Car Its Perfect! — I love my car its gas efficient but fast and very sporty looking!!! The braking is very good on short distance breaking. I have a lot of miles on my car but it still runs like new and the most i have to do are oil changes.

Looked good on the outside

Cons

Engine always shut off

My 2nd Car — I didn't really like this car too much. For one the engine use to shut off when I stopped at a red light and it easily feel apart. Also the manual windows and everything going wrong with it at once wasn't cool either!
