Fun Car Little Car To Bad They Stopped Making Them — Performance is good it accelerates quickly as it is has had some mods done to it. Braking is awesome, stops on a dime. And handling well in all but the tightest corners. Sure I have had some typical repairs and few major job but the cars is 12 years old now and some things are expect so build quality is good. Gas mileage has been improved with my modifications but it never was bad. $40 t fill a tank at most. And the car is plenty fun to drive. I love even the short drives to work. I recommend the car but I would also recommend doing the mods I did to release the beast in this car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Good accelaration and braking, good looks and styling. great gas mileage

Cons: Need some mods to make it a more fun to drive.
