Nice Accel And Handleing For A 4cyl — A 2.5 litre engine is large for a 4 cylinder engine, produces ~170 horsepower so it has a decent engine, great handleing in rain and snow because of AWD. This car beat out my friends V6 convertable going 0-60

Pros: Decent Acceleration, manual transmission, great handleing, fuel efficency isnt that bad either

Cons: Unfortunally its not the Turbo Charged model would have perfered that.

We Like It.. — As far as the pros/cons go, I'm not very picky in that department. We like it so much that I went ahead and bought a second one just like it. It is a decently efficient daily and rather-to-highly efficient since it is a full time- AWD car. Most imports are known for high reliability, this is no different. With low-medium rated snow tires, I've not had any loss of control with snow, even trying to slide in a parking lot. Ice is obvious, regardless of your vehicle or experience, be careful as you can slide and/or lose control.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Has a ton of options, especially since we're used to basic cars in general.

Cons: Whistling by mirrors/windows on highway. Slightly cramped back seat, but at least it is bucket style and a comfortable angle.

This is a nice reliable car but is a bit under powered, especially if towing a trailer.
