    Whatever — Good idea, but not practical. Not possible to mix fun, reliable, practical, inexpensive, and convenient into one car. Should've bought a toy and a a daily driver. Fun car, but not for what I wanted to do. Things break a lot.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nice seats

    Cons: At dealer a lot

    Thank You Sir May I Buy Another. — Fast for a 4 cylinder thanks to the turbo. It's like driving a really fast go cart. Handles very well in the corners and can stop on a dime thanks to the 14 in. rotors and Brembo brake system. It can kick alot of other cars asses even the V-8's and still get 30+ MPG on the highway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's fast,fun and still economical.

    Cons: Even though it's a hatchback it's something you wouldn't want to take the family in on a vacation/long drive.

    My Newish Car At This Point... — Performance, better than my old car. Great build quality no problems since I got it in Nov 07. Pretty affordable to run gets about 27MPG on average. The car is not my source of Fun, but I have gotten all my Speeding tickets with this car in MD so...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a 5 door uitility car, just the right size, not to big and not too small, CVT tranny,  very comforable car

    Cons: Should get better gas milage, wish it had more tech features since I did not feel like paying 2500 more for them

    My New Unit — Too much power (285 whp) for the front wheel drive setup. Gets a little scary when boost hits and you bury the tach while your all over the road. Bad wheel spin and wheelhop. Going to swap rims and see if it makes a difference. I really love the car overall. So much fun to drive. Will be tricky for winter driving though. Car is pretty bad on gas but any 300 hp vehicle wont be the greatest. Overall a very good investment. This car would give my 2004 GSX-R 600 sport bike a decent run for its money...

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

    Pros: 300 HP and dead sexy

    Cons: bad on gas and scary when wheelspin occurs..

    Caliber — Good all around car. High output 2.0 liter engine putting 158 hp, lots of leg and head room, hatchback makes plenty of storage capacity. Low cost to purchase, acceptable repair cost acceptable fuel mileage. Air pressure sensor light is first thing to go wrong and is plenty annopying but not worrisome.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: comfort

    Cons: low power
