    Best Car To Drive If You're Looking For A Sporty Look. — This car picks up quicker than any other similar car I've driven. Breaking is outstanding and it hasn't given me any issues with handling. This car only needed an O2 sensor that was damaged by a previous owner. I've obviously done some work to the outside (i.e. - projector headlights & cowl induction hood.) Gas mileage on this car is great even with running air conditioning if you drive it right. The only maintenance this car requires is standard for any car (i.e. oil change, breaks.) This car has all in all been a joy to drive.

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

    Pros: Gas mileage is amazing!

    Cons: Nothing.

    Good Car For School Aged People — It was a nice cheap car for my young age. She's been good to me! plus what beats a sporty car with a sunroof that drives fast as a teenager. Can't wait to own a four door (and a FORD though ahaha)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable. Sturdy, it was built well.

    Cons: Way too many people have them

    Awesome Car, Great Bang For The Buck — GT1 75th Anniversary Edition. Awesome car for the price. Already moderately customized; Modified Borla exhaust, lowered suspension, strut tower braces front and rear, short ram intake utilizing ram air, 10% tint all around, BFGoodrich g-Force Sport summer tires, debadged, to name a few. Great power and handling, stock brakes tend to have warped rotors (front) but I'll either get drilled/slotted stock rotors, or do the Corvette brake upgrade. Somewhat high maintenance, expensive repairs occasionally, but overall and awesome car

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Seems like there's millions of em out there, But they're easy to set apart, and they look great

    Cons: Better have some bank to fall back on for repairs, there's a long list of known "problems", but it's worth it

    It Works — I basically despise the car. It looked pretty nice when I bought it, and feels sporty enough if you haven't driven much, but overall the craftsmanship is comletely shoddy, and pieces are constantly breaking, falling off, or failing. It's good enough as a Point A - To - Point B car, but being a car geek it certainly isn't my first choice anymore.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fairly sporty looking

    Cons: Underpowered engine, shoddy craftsmanship

    Poor Qaulity , Fun Porformance For The Price.... — This car accelerates pretty good for a auto. handling was great too, easy too make tight turns and etc. (I guess wider was better..) Brakes sucked, Or maybe it was my driving.. But I had too replace my wheel-bearing 3 times on this car. And I only owned it for 3 years. My body Of the car was still in great condition.. Interior was fair (I smoked ciggs.) The cost of this car was ridicules, mainly because I had it financed. But, the total cost came out to be $14,999 even though the car was like 3 years old. The only fun factor of this car was it's sporty body and it's peppy little twin-cam engine.. Other than that, the standard sound-system wasn't bad either..

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great car too start out driving.. Pretty decent amount of features ..

    Cons: Macinacal problems out THE ass..

    It's Good Enough For Me Right Now. — It's a good first-driver's car. Has a decent stereo for my music. GM should take better care of their engines though because it took some work to fix it up. Cost my parents an extra $3,000! That wasn't fun. But it drives fine now. I would just check the engines of these things before anyone decides to buy one.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's sort of cute, I guess.

    Cons: Engine problems
