My First "real" Car — The car handle extremely well. Wonderful acceleration as well as top speed, even though I have never reached it.

Pros: Acceleration

Cons: blind spots, no real trunk, very little room in backseat

Good Performance, Lots Of Maintenance Required. — I bought the car used with 130K miles on it so it wasn't surprising that it needed some work done, but I quickly spent close to what I bought the car for with engine overhauls. There are a few main known quality problems with this model that can be found easily be searching online.

Pros: It's hot, goes fast, and I drive it

Cons: Spent lots of money on repairs :-( but goes great now!

One Word Describes It All....fast — the car that i drove was 400 hp with a 100hp nitrous boost lots of work and money into that car. it did the quarter mile in 12.5 sec and the top speed ( or the fastest i took it) was 168mph.

Pros: fast,

Cons: gets kinda scary the faster you go

I Love My Car... That's About It — It's got a lot of miles on it but it runs great and looks pretty good. Acceleration is obviously amazing with a 350c.i. v8 and rear wheel drive. Handling is good as far as i'm concerned.

Pros: Fast, fun, and... awesome

Cons: needs new timing belt, and radio...  thats about it

Fun And Reliable. I Would Recommend This To Anyone Looking For A Fun Weekend Car. — The acceleration for this car is more than you would expect from a normal V6. It gives you plenty of pep without sacrificing much fuel economy. The car is very fun the drive and handles corners great. The interior is a little cheaply made, but as long as you aren't rowdy on the inside I think you should be okay. I consistently get around 22-22mpg with a good mix of city and highway driving. This car has always been reliable and enjoyable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros:
- Good acceleration without sacrificing MPGs
- Great handling
- Affordable for almost anyone
- Fun driving experience

Cons:
- Interior is a little cheap
- Very small backseat
- Not practical for winter driving
