Awesome Car — I love this car, had it since it was brand new. Have never had any problems with it to date and its getting old now. One of the best cars I have ever owned.

Pros: Handles great, good on gas, nice interior, fold down back seat.

Cons: If you have a family with kids, this won't be too convenient for you.

At This Price, It Is Hard To Get A Better Car. — This is a very easy to maintain car and inexpensive, too. The handling is not soft nor hard.

Owner for 4 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:20,000

Pros: Not bad on gas and handling is positive.

I Love It, Don't Plan On Gettin Rid Of It For A While. — handles great, goes a decent speed, but has a governor in it. =( Looks pretty nice and mine has a kick ass audio set up in it. can be fun to drive, just keep an eye on it, Watch the fluids, they drain quite fast, but gas mileage is amazing on it.

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

Pros: Great Gas Mileage, comfortable, handles great

Cons: once one thing goes on it, you have to keep a close watch on it, regardless of repairs.
