    Total Throw-away Vehicle. — This car looked kinda nice back in the day when I owned it but it was an absolute lemon. The engine went out at 70,000 miles and was replaced with a $1500 one. That too died as soon as the warranty was up, like, literally 100 miles later, lol, and the mechanic obviously didn't want to honour it. I ended up selling the POS for $600 when the KBB was over $4000 had it been running. I was always really nervous about driving this car because it broke down ALL the time. It was so bad that I should have bought a tow-dolly instead of renting one to get the jalopy home.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It looked pretty.

    Cons: It always looked pretty in the same place because it wouldn't run!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: the muffler

    Cons: the window

    Nice Starter Car For A High School Student Or A Mom With One Child. — I purchased this car with my own money and did not like it at first. I really wanted a truck. The car then changed my mind. The comfortable ride that it offered with the adjustable volume when you slowed or accelerated the speed was awesome. The car took the heat of living in Dallas as well. No heavy foot could beat this car or a crazy driver like me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The color of a dark forest shiny green was what I loved most about this car; beside the comfortable ride was what hooked me.

    Cons: It was too tight of a fit for two car seats and way too low.

    Fun To Drive And Will Be More Fun With More Power — It a little under powed now But I have plans to fix this can any one say 3100 v6 and maybe some boost in the future. handles great with 2" lowering springs but could be better with adjustable coil overs

    Pros: handling

    A Very Reliable Automobile — Performance - Acceleration is best from 2nd to 4th. Braking is great with front disk brakes and back drum brakes working as one. Handling is outstanding with front wheel drive pulling instead of the rear wheel drive pushing. Appearance - The sunroof provides extra aerodynamics with the stock spoiler. Cost of Ownership - With 35mpg? You decide.. Fun Factor - I wake up every morning with only one question. When can I drive today and where?

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

    Pros: Front wheel drive means better handling on and off road. Standard transmission means better fuel economy.

    Cons: The seat belt sticks when trying to recoil it back into the vinyl. Backseat is not very roomy in height and it's difficult sometimes to crawl into the backseat.

    Decent — - acceleration is slowish. - braking and handling is mint. - has a wining noise and in need of a fuel pump maybe - interior is decent. exterior is ok just a few dents and shitty paint job from old owner.. - great for gas milage and comfort accept in the back seat..

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

    Pros: smooth ride.

    Cons: slow pick up..

    Its Ok For A Hard Top Road — Its a good riding car in the summer, awesome heater in the winter, just sits to low to the ground for where I live. If in city it would be a great car! Rides smooth, sometimes to smooth as you are going down the road and you think you are going 55-60 and you are going 75. Thats when cruise controll would be handy,

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

    Pros: Gas mileage

    Cons: sits so low to the ground
