A Blast To Drive! — We love driving this car with the top down. It is a blast in the summer time at the beach. It handles fantastic and gets pretty good gas mileage at about an average of 25mpg. I would definitely recommend this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A lot of Fun!

Cons: Small for a family of 4.

Bmw - Driving Pleasure ;) — Great accelaration, very good handling and strong brakes. The quality of the materials is perfect. Cheap maintenance and rare repairs. This is the winner of it's class. A lot of joy while driving or drifting (think more drifting). ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE. I LOVE IT.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: One of a kind.

Cons: No reasons to avoid this car.

Quick, Fuel Efficient, Cheap — i got this car out of a salvage yard so it is not perfect but it is rebuilt and no one can tell it is rebuilt without a tapemeasure of have looked at alot of wrecked cars, i supervised all of the work and okayed all of the parts that were put on it so it is in perfect condition, with only a few scratches in the paint where it didn't get repainted. The biggest pain about this car is bmw outsourced the transmission building to General Motors and their transmission is a pile, the automatic that is.

Pros: reliable, quick, fuel economy

Cons: hatchback looks abrupt

A little thirsty. Small back seats. Service costs really expensive. Could be a little more reliable. Air con, and electrics die young. Has excellent handling, good power.

It's The Honda Accord Of Our Age By Aaron

It's a perfectly reasonable car. Goes fast when you want it too, uses less gas when you want that. Back seat is big enough so the kids don't complain. Just wish it were a bit less bland. I used to... Read More
