Would Like To Have One Again In My Collection. — It was good little car to get you around in. The perfomance was ok on it, but I wouldn't take it on a long trip. The car was a blast to ride though. Cheap on gas with a small engine. A good learning car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great starter car

Cons: Not meant to go far
