Not Too Bad — We bought this used and are in the process of correcting the neglect of the previous owner(s). Nice and compact, half-convertible, needs some work though. Wish it had cruise control but perhaps we have just been spoiled. It is quite hot as the a/c has a difficult time keeping it cool in direct sunlight but the convertible top is nice so you can't have the best of both.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's paid for.

Cons: It isn't "perfect".

If You Need A Beater It'll Do The Job. — Very functional car. It isn't much fun, it isn't pretty to look at. It has a small engine, and if it was an automatic transmission, it would be completely useless. The previous owner never serviced it well so i had to replace the whole front end once, but other than that, it runs non stop!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap fuel, cheap initial cost.

Cons: Noisy, weak, and boring.

Great Car In My Book! — All in all it's a good car handles well brakes good and shifts smoothly. The size is a little small on the older ones but it fits me just fine. Only problem is where they ran the vaccum hoses for the four wheel drive. They tend to break easily.

Pros: Easy on gas and fun to drive.

Cons: Bad placement of vaccum hoses.

2001 Kia Sportage — Love the simple smooth deassign. Big chunky tires, built on a truck frame. Interior is comfortable, but could have more leg room in the back. It has more than 100,000 miles on it but still drives almost like new. My BF drove it and said it almost feels like your floating.

Pros: Pritty tuff, had it for 8 years, never broken down on me, quient smooth ride

Cons: acceleration when going 60 or more is sssslllloooooowww :(  To much body roll

Nice Little Toy — You have to love this car, because it's small, it's slow and the gas consumption is terrible :-))) But it's all about the hart. There's nothing better then driving without your roof on. And the terrain it can go through .... I just love mine!!! :-)))
