Needed Smaller Rims For The Car But A Good Car — v6 manual 5 speed was a very reliable car never missed a beat with ss suspension under it a sports high flow exhaust sounded near like an 8 went hard but 19 rims were a lil much for it just ended up breaking suspension mounts

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

Pros: reliable

Cons: rough ride with rims and suspension

Less Than Mediocre — Brakes are a bit hard. handling is less than mediocre, acceleration quite quick, only good thing about this paticular vehicle. Build quality path - rattles & squeaks everywhere. Appearance all less than mediocre. Gas mileage not great. Less than mediocre to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 'coz I have to

Cons: All the negative points

Unique Aussie Car, Well At Least One Of The Few :) — Performance: Not a whole lot of punch but it is generally fun to drive, because its an utility, during wet seasons with no weight in the tailgate area the vehicle is prone to slip. Braking is very good and handling is somewhat unique. Build Quality: Generally quite solid for most parts. Appearance: Interior is a bit bland due to basing off the Executive badge/trim level (which is the most basic trim) with a few extras for Sports series. Exterior styling is really nice personally. Cost of ownership: Not so cheap to run with registration bill is going up along with the typical petrol prices but if you really like the car, there's nothing that will stop you will there? Maintenance costs are generally ok with some parts of the car that are easy to access and therefore easy to maintain if you're willing to get down and dirty. Fun Factor: Well its a manual utility, it speaks for itself :) I personally would say that when it rains, it tends to get really horny, loves speed and going through tyres if you're a lead foot and a little lazy with gear changing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of fun to drive and you will gain unique experience over handling such vehicles.

Cons: Not necessarily cheap on the wallet but who cares when you're enjoying every moment of it?

Large Size For Large People — its very smooth and comfortable for big people to sit in and has lots of room for long legs and a huge boot for all the toys and tools and stuff to roll around in as well as it looks really nice

Pros: good fuel economy for a large car

Cons: exspensive to fix if it breaks down
