It's Really A 2000 — Bought it off the lot; I've put 32,000 miles on it and it will run for years and years. Not a bad car for the island and family.

Pros: Looks nice and seating is flexible

Cons: Under powered for the looks

Great Looks And Fun Styling — I love all the extras and the leather and chrome. It arguably an ugly car...but it doesn't care, I think that is what makes it amazing. This car is like nothing else on the road.

Pros: Looks great and drives well

Cons: Fuel consumption is poor and parts are expensive

It's Ok — Just drove this few times, few years back.. Not much to say after all this time, but it left kind of feeling, that you're driving a Japanese car.. It's a nice basic car maybe for two people + few bags and stuff, to go shopping and hobbies and so; average in anyway, except for the fresh exterior which is kinda cool =)

Pros: Quick response on steering wheel, slightly sporty touch overall, unique exterior.

Cons: Maybe a little difficulties at first, trying to understand the dimensions in front side, or maybe it's just me ;-)  Didn't like the pedals at all, too sensitive!

Adquate, But Not Great. — Turning radius sucks --- gutless when carrying adults ----- Got hosed when car was purchased because of dealer markup.

Excellent — My 2001 has been a very reliable car for our family. It is also very roomy in the cargo area. Currently we have roughly 208,000 miles on our vehicle. Having a small problem with the oil sensor light which comes on at llow idle 800-1000 rpm.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Been a great family car with little maintenance required other than a timing belt, brakes, tires, etc.

Cons: Oil senor light comes on at low idle. This light would come on when at low idle; mechanic repaired problem by replacing oil sending unit. Have not had an issue related to this since. More importantly, I do not have to add oil because the bad "unit" was the cause for loosing the oil. Recommend to others who are experiencing a similar problem, start with a heavier grade oil and if that does not resolve problem, I would recommend changing out the oil sending unit. It certainly worked for me.
