Pros

Fuel efficient, mechanically sound (engine and Tranny dependable), most options in price range. versatile design sharp looks sharp turn radius, great handling and braking. Cost to maintain and service got more affordable throughout ownership.

Cons

suspect electrical components(several sensors replaced), paint defective on trim, low power, Out of production.

Affordable Family Car, Excellent Utility But Wont Be Winning Any Races — I really the like all the features in this car as far as safety storage and design. The drive train runs as smooth as the day I bought it. The electrical sensors in this car are S*%T!! If anything ever went wrong with this car it was a sensor 99.9% of the time. Fortunately they got cheaper to replace over the years. I wouldn't say it was a exciting driver but I would take a ride in this over my wife's 2003 Taurus ANY DAY! This model seems to carry a rather unfavorable reputation for some reason making it cheap but I cant really say I didn't get my moneys worth. It did what we needed from it dutifully.

Pros

Very nice looking, clean on the inside and out. New tires. New paint. Cd player. AM/FM radio option. Used very lightly.. New LEGAL tint put on car in November of 2013. Very fun to drive, very easy to drive. The car is a very safe car.

Cons

Not a very family car. Doesn't sit very comfy for long rides or when car is at its full capacity, which is 5 people.

Love The Vehicle. Going Off To College, Need Something With Fewer Miles. Great First Car!! — The gas mileage is not the best. Not very comfortably when at full capacity. Great first car. Needs Ac looked at, it works fine just not very strong. Love the car. The paint is beautiful up close and in the sun..

Actually Worse Than A Hyundai. — I had to use one of these as a loaner car once. When I started driving this car away from the dealership, I thought, "damn this thing is slow!" I eventually realized I hadn't released the parking brake, and after I released it, there wasn't much difference. This car is a lot like an Elantra, except slower. A dull suspension and rental fleet interior made me wonder, "why do people even bother building cars like this one?" Warning: Driving a Forenza every day may induce suicidal tendencies.
