High quality cheap car.  Quick

Cons

MPG  only 26 for a 4 banger

Fun Ride — I love everything about it. It is a manual. The manuals are fairly quick. Automatics are slow. It has a touchy clutch. Has good low end torque. Has a very good power band range. Very fun to drive. It would be nice if it could handled turns a little better.

Best Car In Its Class. — No dissapointments. All around good college car. It has great gas mileage, good sound system (even tho i added aftermarket sub) and no major problems with the motor. If you are a college student or you like sports cars this is a sweet car to own. Test drive one and you will see what i mean.

I just wrote the positives!

Cons

When I find one, I'll let you know.

Huh? — Love the moonroof and the sunroof! I like the handling- it is awesome. Also gas mileage is great. It also rides very smooth, makes minimal if any noise and is roomy for a 2 door touring coupe. People actually dont mind sitting in the back! Also the hatchback is awesome.

Pros

the sweet sun roof

Cons

when truck door is opened excess water leaks into trunk

Verrrry Niiiice — I like the way the sun roof opens along with the stereo pop up cover. Great on gas and I enjoy the TRD exhuast which has a deep sound to it. Very fun to drive around town, not so much now because there are so many. Overall sweet car. Don't get it because then there will be more of them.

Poppin — Like: comfortable inside, dual moon-roof, hefty power but not too fast, comfortable, quiet when not getting deaf by my stereo, quick and auto-up/down windows, all glass top makes it easier to wash, everything goes off only after opening door. I still get compliments on it. It's poppin. Dis-like: 20-22MPG since I drive a lot of city. Large and heavy door hard to get out of tight parking spots. Good looks and personalized license plate make it hard to go around discretely.
