Good First Car — If anyone thinks these things are gutless, then they aren't driving them properly. Better yet, modify the intake (as I've done) to get better air flow and the top end gets better. Soundly defeating my mates falcon in a standing start straight line isn't too bad. Get better tyres on the thing and alot of the understeer nasties tend to fade, and in corners, leave it in 3rd instead of going back to 2nd. More torque in the midrange. Strong enough engine for a 1100kg car.

Pros: Space, appearance.

Cons: Everybody has one, dodgy handling if left on crap tyres.

Gutless Wonder — Absolute gutless wonder, however on corners can out do a ford probe v6 24valve, still weak as hell though, even with sports mode engaged, best for flat areas where hills don't exist.

Pros: practicality, reliability

Cons: lack of acceleration, torque etc.

Nicknamed: "the Gutless Wonder" — We had fun with it, so it was an ok car... we spent a lot of the time bagging it out too....

Pros: boot space, cabin space

Cons: gutless....
