    This Is The Best Car I Ever Bought. — The low cost of ownership has saved me the price of the vehicle. It did not cost much to buy, did not cost much to maintain, and still get nearly 40 MPG on the highway. Yes, the cassette (!) player is hard to access and the A/C is good but not great, but every year I drive it is another year my daughter can go to college.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: DEPENDABLE

    Cons: rotors warp too easily, weak exhaust manifold

    Good Starter To The Import Scene — well its a good car if your just into imports and looking to buy parts cheap but the downside is that is lacks power and you need to do lots to gain it. looks good i love the hatchback look but it was fun to drive and cheap on gas.

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

    Pros: sporty and small

    Cons: lacks a lot of power

    Awesome Ride — the porformance was good for 1.5 and looks mighty good with bodykit and 17" rims. the spares are expensive but worth it. you can fit a K20A in and probably get over 200bhp with proper tunning. overrall good car and odviously worth every penny.

    Pros: you can get a lot of power

    Cons: expensive spares

    Solid Car, Worth The Money — handles very well, not the greatest acceleration but i'm getting about 40 mpg or 400 miles to the tank, it's a smooth ride and drives real nice in snow and ice, but it's light so if you're stuck in a snowbank it's easy to get out (shakes a little around 110mph)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable, Affordable

    Cons: Wish it were a stickshift
