    Would Definitely Buy One — We drove this car to Florida on our honeymoon. The color matched our wedding colors. I was able to swap my custom wheels from a breeze on to it, as well as my intake, just for fun. Sounded and looked great. I would've bought one if I could have.

    Pros: fun to drive ,color, comfortable

    Cons: a little slow,not as much cargo space as i would like

    2.4l Classic — Average, But quite fun to drive, quite a willing engine, more power needed tho for a 2.4l engine, ride firm but not too hard

    Pros: Nippy, Cheep

    Cons: Very basic and typical American plastic interior

    Coulda, Shoulda, But Too Many Glitches. — Corners well, accelerates decently, hold a lot of stuff, good ergonomics, but stuff went wrong.

    Pros: looks, drive, gas mileage, braking, snow handling

    Cons: poor quality components

    Do Not Buy One! — Car has a lot of quirks and defects that diminish its overall appeal. Even though it is a GT, there is not enough torque and acceleration on this vehicle.

    Pros: The car has a nice "Dick Tracy" look, and is comfortable inside.

    Cons: This car, as stated before, has a lot of little manufacturing defects that reduce its overall appeal.

    Little Speedster — I loved this car so much. Never left me stranded or had any technical or mechanical difficulties. As long as you keep up with the scheduled maintenance it should last for a very long time. It is a nice size to race around town in, go on road trips, beach cruise, or to haul items around in. Trustworthy car and has kept me safe since 2006. Fun fact: I named her Beluga because it is white and reminds me of a Beluga whale!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great zippy little car. Good for a daily driver. Very clean and well maintained.

    Cons: Gas mileage is okay, turbo boosting is fun but uses some gas.
    No ABS brakes/traction control
