    I Like It. I Get All My Cars Second Hand From The Same Friend. He Gets Rid Of Them Around 90,000mile — Its a nice little car. Good on gas. I can fit the kids in it when I need to. Its comfortable for a long ride and pretty decent in the snow.The front end is a tough one, I seem to always need an alignment. working on it is sometimes a problem real tight under the hood. I cant really complain. I bought it used and I got more than my moneys worth from it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: pretty good on gas/ 5 Speed Manual/ almost 200000 and still hits 100MPH

    Cons: I drive over 600 miles a week/ Cant keep the alignment on the front end eats up tires

    Enjoy The Cute Car. — I ordered this car after seeing a sketch of one, and waited 10 months for it to be built. Such a fun little car. Loved how easy to load and unload with the hatch back. Draw backs would be, it doesn't pick up speed very quickly. Mostly noticed when entering the freeway... Also U turns take a lot of space to navigate. I thought being such a small car that gas mileage would be very good...NOT I averaged 16 miles per gallon. My Chrysler 300C gets the same gas milege and it's a HEMI.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cute and Fun. Easy to load and unload.

    Cons: Not real zippy, not good gas mileage.

    It's Like My Wife - It Ain't Perfect But I Love It. — Loved this car from the moment I saw it. Had to have one. Bought base model with 5 speed standard - much better performance than automatic, Upgraded to a K&N cold air intake - great added pop and makes a wonderful noise at 4,000 rpm. Good car for fooling around in traffic, big enough for 4 adults, or 3 adults with golf clubs and carts. EASY TO GET IN AND OUT OF!!!!!(I am tall). Cheap car, great fun to drive, lot's of rattles and clunks. room for lots of stuff. Not great on gas, but that's my fault and the great noise at 4,000 rpm

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Easy to get in and out of, Fun to drive,

    Cons: Year one car - noisy and details not fully resolved

    Decent Bang For Buck. — It picks up well. It's spacious. Looks semi classic and has many possible modifications. Handles long trips very well with the touring suspension. Gas is decent. The stick shift makes it fun to drive, but if I had to buy again I would buy the turbo model.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good family car.  It's spacious.  It picks up well and slows down quick.

    Cons: Tight engine compartment.  Hard to work on.

    Love My Car! — Problems with defective paint on bumpers. Didn't show up for a couple of years. By then the dealer wouldn't fix it. Slow upon acceleration, but the power is there on the other end, if you need to pass someone. Gas mileage isn't that great. Brakes need replacing fairly frequently because the car is probably too heavy for the frame. I recommended it to two friends and they both bought one!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great fun and lots of clubs to join.

    Cons: Gas mileage

    My Cruiser — This car is somthing I'm having trouble making a decision on. It is very reliable, has a lot of room for a little car, and has a manual tansmission which, in my opinion, is supirior to atomatic transmissions. However, I'm not a big fan of the color, and i would rather have a Jeep or Mustang.

    Pros: Transmission, Reliability
