Pros

Excellent handling and sleek to look at. Manual transmission is the way to go with this go kart. No distractions. All driving fun. Large capacity with back seats down. Can even fit four tires laying flat.

Cons

Small front cabin. Radio unexceptional

Silver Scion Frs — I truly love driving this car other than shifting in traffic. Very rare to see on the road this distinct, sexy shape. Low center of gravity and small steering wheel give you the feel of being in an expensive race car. I have owned a Porsche 912 and the FR-S handles much like that. Not great in snow. All the garage attendants think this is the best car in the lots.

Great Car — I love it.looks great better in person than in Pictures,the motor is small but if you drive It hard feels good and the handling is awesome. The only things I'd change are to ad more Power to the motor and more luxurious Interior.

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

Great Car — Great car. I use it as a summertime daily driver. I have done light track use with it as well. The car is loads of fun if you enjoy driving. Allows you to truly drive, every imput is transferred to the road. I average 32 MPG with the manual and I don't baby it at all. The back seats are more of a decoration but I don't need them so that doesn't bother me. Comfortable on city, rural roads or interstate. Very happy with it.

Must Have! — This car is so fun to drive. It is great on gas mileage. The standard transmission makes it more fun. Anyone who loves sports car should give the FRS a try. It is definitely exciting to drive and a eye catcher.

Pros

Very sleek-looking, responsive and has superb handling. Very goood gas mileage and is a very gorgeous-looking car. The cheapest true sports car that you can buy- less than $29,0000.00.

Cons

Very low profile. I have to be extra careful when going over humps and hills, uneve surfaces, craters and rocky ground.

An Excellent Sports Car For The Price. — This is a small car that's good only for two people to ride in. It's got practically no room for passengers in the back just like most sporty cars. The FRS, however, is a great small car for drivers like myself who likes to drive a smooth and great-looking car without blowing his budget. It's internal components and engine are made by Subaru and Toyota designed its exterior looks. The cons for this car is offset by the fact that it's a very reaonably priced car- below $30K. No car afficionado in his right mind can really demand any more high-end/extra features from this car. Toyota and Subaru is marketing it to the average middle class sports car enthusiast who can get by with just 200 horses and just enough room for two.

Pros

power is very nice as well, tectronic shifting is fun.

Cons

Fun At First, Not Good For The Long Term — The Car isn't practical for everyday use, for highway or long trips. It is a good city car but is also very small and gets over taken by bigger traffic. I would go for a bigger car that has the horsepower to compensate for heavier weight.

This is an extremely fun car to drive. It has pretty good gas mileage and is perfect for daily driving. The only negatives to the car are the lack of space in the rear seats, but it's a sports car so ... Read More
