Guy claimed that there was no rust on the vehicle but there was in some spots. Air bag light is on in the car and he didn’t even know why!! Front bumper needs replaced rear view mirror needs re placed few other things in the vehicle. Also rust under the gas tank door. This car is not worth 5 grand and he wasn’t budging on the price.

Sharp, Drag Car. — I love my car. Plenty of power to it to get me going. Definitely good gas mileage for cars these days. Best part about it are the looks. She has a carbon fiber spoiler while sitting on 17 inch rims. Great car overall

Pros: real nice, sharp car. plenty of power.

Cons: some internal mechanical problems that have been hitting the wallet.

Great Daily Driver With Plenty Of Power — the best combination of comfort, performance, and convince. very powerful when you want it to be and very smooth and fuel efficient when needed. plenty of head room and leg room for any size person. and a nice designed car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great power train. fuel efficient v6 but has power when is needed due to the supercharger. very spacious and comfortable. handles great

Cons: no manuel transmission option

Incredible! A Gem For A First Car! — Car rode smooth and had more than enough speed to brag about. Only problem I had was that my AC went out, but that was a rare case from what I read. But as far as the rest of the car goes, I couldn't have asked for a better car through school.

Pros: This car has plenty of torque and acceleration with the supercharged engine and I absolutely loved this car throughout high school and college! It's breaking 140,000 miles and still runs smooth as could be. Little long for my taste but just I appreciated having room for my school work, sports equipment, work tools, and more. Not to mention this car is beautiful for its age.

Cons: Because of its size parking was a hassle at first, but after some time i hardly had any trouble.

A Great Car All Around. Inside And Out. — I loved the fact that I could race anyone just putting around on the street and win, I loved that my car was kept clean so the paint was nice. I didn't like on my car was when I bought it the car had bad rear struts, and now I have a bad brake line and a bad tentioner pully. A bad heater core, and my fog lights are burnt out.

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

Pros: It's a great car, really gets up and go's, a great show off car, burn the tires off. The supercharger sounds amazing as it wines and draws the attention of all the on lookers. The amount of people that try to race you at stop lights and loose, it's a amazing feeling. Very reliable, every time it starts and Feels like Just as much power as the first day i got it. It's a great car and I wouldn't trade it, I'm gonna run it to the ground flooring it every time.

Cons: Get to know the local cops very well. But mostly the useual stuff like the window regulator, and the abs light or the tire pressure light. Rusting out. Going threw so many pairs of tires. And my phone always falls out of my cup holder when I accelerate.

Really Great When There Is No Issues. — This car electrical system isn't great. The air didn't work when I bought it. Also the motors for the windows goes out. Other than that this car is great. I would definently buy another one if I could find one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Car handles very well and alot of power and gas saver. It's also spacious. Parts are also pretty cheap.

Cons: Have issues with the spark plugs having no spark.

Nice Style, Tough As A Truck — recently parked as it had finally rusted out, i live near the coast. 450k later. Still ran like a top. started everyday with exception to a bad fuel pump, which was easily changed through the access door behind rear seat. ( less than an hour.)

Pros: very well built ,  if better care is taken to undercoat, this car would last forever.

Cons: body fell apart

Lots Of Bang For $$$ — I have almost 400,000 km on this car and the only non original part is the alternator. I get 34+ mpg on hiwaay and has enough power to burn off both front tires at any moment with no supercharger. It handles like it's on rails and is a very solid car.

Pros: fun to drive

Cons: will have to get rid of soon
