I Loved Driving It — This is my parents car, but i used to drive it. This particular model came with a I4 but it had very impressive performance. I got it to 102 on a local highway before having to slow down, but it could of easily reached much higher speeds. The interior is a little stark, but it has the essentials, and it is very comfortable, and fairly large. The color was alright (grey), but i would of perferred black.

An Awesome Starter Car For Anyone. — I've had this car for just about a year and I love it. People always tend to gravitate toward my car more than others because of the way it looks; it draws plenty of attention my way. It looks sporty, although the I4 engine could do much better. The interior of the car is nice as well, giving the feeling of a cockpit.

Pros

Comfortable, reliable, stylish. Handles well, accelerates and brakes well. No funny noises. Heater works very well and keeps the backseat passengers warm too.

Cons

Can't see how close I am to car behind me when parallel parking. Gets about 30 mpg on highway, not bad, but would be nice to get better gas mileage. Air conditioner works but doesn't get real cold.

I Liked My 1998 So Much That I Bought A 2005 When I Decided To Upgrade. — I have only had to do normal maintenance on this car. No major repairs. My only complaint is that I wish the cup holders were more conveniently placed and that there was a light in the cigarette lighter/power source area.

Primary Use: Family transportation
