    Only When Needed — Um, I got it cheap, put a ton of miles on it, sold it back, I hated it all along but I did use it to haul everything to renovate my condo. gas mileage was okay but engine was loud and lazy. still think it looks like a mini hearse

    Pros: space, gas mileage

    Cons: funky to drive, cheap paint

    Pt's Are So Gogeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous Car — It was my dream's car! till I received it from my Lord, Jesus like a great gift. Its a wonder testimony, God help me to get it ... how? I went to the dealer looking for a Mustang GT but walking to the exit there it was & only can I tell you is that ..I can't believe it until !!CHRIST DID IT!!

    Pros: The color, body, all of it

    Cons: Nothing, thanks to God !

    I Love My Car But She Definitly Needs Some Work. — Overall a very nice ride, it handles very well but is a little sluggish when accelerating. The interior is spacious and is great for hauling things in as the rear seats not only fold flat but come out. The road noise in minimal and the sound system is decent. I want to put some suicide doors on some day...

    Pros: I love the body style, it reminds of the old cars from the early 20th century.Has plenty of cargo space, perfect moving as I found out.

    Cons: Unfortunately it only has a 4cylinder engine. The car really is too heavy for that it needs 6. And the gas mileage stinks.

    My Turbo Pt — I like that the seats come out completely to make room for a lot of storage. I like the size which is easy to find parking with. I like the heated seats, the sunroof and the turbo. I DON'T like the low profile tires since they break on pot holes and cost $400 each. I dont like the gas mileage which is about 20 mpg city. Overall the car has great pick up for a small car since it is turb.

    Basic — We had 5 for work, served its function but was bad on gas for an inline 4. Holds a lot of mail and packages though.

    Pros: Space and ease to access space is great.

    Cons: Poor mileage and a little clown car-ish.

    It's An Old Style Car With New Tecnolagy — It's a good kind of cheep car. (Insurance is a bit pricey because they are so new.) Has an over all good performance. Can do speeds well and turns are smooth. Is a bit sensitive to the passengers moving from side to side. But the wide wheel base helps prevent it from tilting. Has a lot of room for a small car. Can fold down, fold up, or remove back seats for more storage room. Also the front passenger seat folds down to make 75" of storage room. (found out how much room when I put a coat rack in the car.)

    Pros: Has lost of room inside for a such a small car.
    Good wiring unlike the VW Beetle that is the same price but has system problems because of low quality manufacturing and designing.
    Good turning radius.

    Cons: Not much room in the trunk.
    Is light weight so people playing jello in the back tilts the car a bit.
    I have had some engine problems but it was a rental car before I got it so it's been through a lot of driving.
    Engine is not the strongest but it can get up the mountains with out much trouble and keep up with a BMW M5 on the highway if wanted.
    Has little or no storage room under the seats. (for like a fire extinguisher, or first aid kit.)

    Handsome Retro Styling. — Although my car doesn't look entirely like the one pictured, mine has the full chrome trim package, interior and exterior, which really amps up the overall look. This car has loads of storage space, with 60/40 split rear seats and a fold down front passenger seat there is room for an eight foot ladder. Also great for transporting my 85 lb dog, too. She loves it!

    Pros: Its a great looking car and has tonnes of storage space, up to an eight foot ladder due to the fold down front passenger seat.

    Cons: Blind spots.  Initially a little difficult to overcome, but you adjust.
