    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

    One Hell Of A Car!!!! — Great car for highway driving. Smooth and comfortable ride. Beautiful on the outside and inside. Get a few upgrades on it and you'll be flying!!!

    Pros: Speed, torque, acceleration, braking, appearance

    Cons: Handling once in awhile can be a little sluggish

    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

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

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