Amazing — great gas milage (350 / tank), good handling, standard or automatic - quick acceleration, does what you want it to, only routine repairs, easy to make faster, easy to maintain, biiiggg trunk - hauls a lot for a car, no problems, fun to drive

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.

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.

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

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!

Pros

Dashboard, good gas milage

Cons

Very long doors (coupe)

Good Weekly Rental — I drove this one as a rental for a week on vacation in Alberta. I know the reputation this whole series had but at least for a limited time car rental, this did the job. Gas milage was ok, it was comfy and this coupe was actually fun to drive. I really enjoyed the dashboard display at night: all red. The only negative for the week that I had it was that the damn doors were so long that it was easy to nick another car when parked. Perhaps all coupes are like that. For that, I like my four or five door option :)

Quick, nimble, and underestimated.

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. :)
