Got Me Where I Wanted To Go, But Fell Apart From The Inside Out. — fun to drive, but acceleration on a cold engine was downright dangerous. Sometimes the car would sputter and die when accelerating into traffic. Excellent handling on dry roads, but in snow this car was pathetic. Good reliable transportation for around town, but I never really trusted it much on long high speed drives.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good gas mileage

Cons: gutless wonder on cold engine
